Did you miss it? Because I sure did. The Blogger/Publisher kerfuffle. I completely understand publishers wanting to save money by printing less books and saving on shipping when they might not get a review out of it. However, bloggers (for the most part) do not work for the publisher. It's a hobby, and we have real, full-time jobs. Sometimes we don't get to stuff, and sometimes we choose not to review something, and sometimes it takes us a long time to get around to reading something. We are not on your payroll. From the LA Times.
