My love affair with books is a long one. As a little girl growing up in Athens, I remember sending my friends home early from my fifth birthday party because all that celebrating was keeping me away from my books. Who needed friends and cake? I had my books! Since I was 21, there hasn't been a time when I wasn't researching or writing a book. Until now. So, instead of my signing another book contract, we are launching a Books section, in partnership with the New York Review of Books, where you'll find the latest book-related news and blog posts, book reviews, all sorts of special features, and, of course, articles from the New York Review of Books. So if you love books, reading, and good writing, please check out HuffPost Books.
The Kindle is for the book-lover who might buy a first, a signed or a special edition. It is lingerie. It is a box of chocolates or a bottle of double-malt. Competition will drive it to adapt, and it will.
