  • ‘According to Figment vice president Katie Robbins, the idea for the daily email was inspired by the Figment community’s demand for more ways to get inspired. Among Figment’s many services are social networking, feedback exchange opportunities, and writing contests, but users were “always eager for more,” Robbins says. “We wanted to do something that would encourage writers of all ages to get into the daily practice of writing and make good, carefully crafted writing prompts available to them on a daily basis.”‘

  • “Enhanced e-books—which have multimedia features such as audio, video, pop-up graphics, 3-D images and animation—are being touted as the next frontier in the digital-books landscape.”

  • “Here are the finalists for fiction and non-fiction with excerpts and other links where available. As a side note, the NBCC award is particularly interesting in that it is one of the few major awards that pits American books against overseas (usually British) books.”
