Cites & Insights 13:4 (April 2013) available

After three Big Serious Issues in a row, and with a Big Serious Essay on the Mythical Public Library coming up in May, it's time for a little break...

The April 2013 Cites & Insights (13:4) is now available for downloading at

It's 34 pages.

The 6x9" single-column "online version," optimized for e-reading, is also available at and is 63 pages.

The issue includes:
The Front (pp. 1-2)

The Year of Both? My possibly-too-hopeful sense that more and more sensible people, and even some pundits, are recognizing that ebooks and print books are both likely to have substantial roles going forward.

The Middle: Deathwatch 2013! (pp. 2-19)

Catching up with the doomcryers (excluding print books--but see below).

Words: The Death of Books (or Not) (pp. 19-27)

What it says.

The Back (pp. 27-34)

Catching up with miscellaneous snarkiness through 2011 (and more recently for magazine items).



While both hyperlinks for the single-column 6x9 version are correct, the textual form is wrong: It's

That is: There's no "i" after the "v"--it follows the usual pattern that I've been following for, oh, 12.33 years.
