That's a lot of books. I'm not grateful for any sale I get.

And a million books available on the Kindle right now.

Seriously? 1000 books a day!?! Whoa.
And that fridge reminds me of mine when my three kids were all little ones. We'd go through 7 gallons of milk a week!
Bish Denham says
I've always said the only thing I'll ever regret is I won't live long enough to read all the books I want to read. Now I know it for sure!
Lexa Cain says
It's no surprise that publishers are looking for MG mysteries – I adored Nancy Drew and the Hardy Boys when I was that age! 🙂

1000 a day is both depressing and exciting all at the same time! Thanks for the plug. 😀 I'm very excited!!

Wow! I had no idea that 1000 books were published a day. That's a lot of books. Thanks for sharing the tidbit. Looks like none of us realized that.

Like Al Diaz, I can see why it's so difficult to stand above the crowd with there's so much coming out in the publishing world, no matter which route taken. WOW!
I'm starting the week off on a happy note revealing the cover for my novella, Frailties of the Bond. It's a YA story with a bite (hehe!)
Al Diaz says
That's a lot of books on daily basis. No wonder why it is so hard to stand above from the crowd.
Well, my week is starting with signal. Let's hope it stays like that. 🙂
