Halvsies Online in China
A booming literary market yielding about $15 million a year (half going to the writer) can be found online in China according to GalleyCat, there's a digital book website called Shanda, which has 25 million literary readers. Can you imagine 25 million literary anything in the U.S.? That's how many people watched American Idol last night. Face it: we're a culture of junk and celebrity.
