I was just reading through yesterday's edition of Five Star Friday, and happened across this blog post from Centre of the Universe - The Dreaming. It breaks down the cost of publishing a book (in Canada). Just in case any of you (and by "any of you" I mean "me") forgot what it takes to make it in this industry, here's some interesting reading that should jog your memory. I am definitely never going to complain about retail prices ever again...at least, not in Canada. I also learned that publishers are pushing more and more for their printers to use "greener" paper stock -- but of course, this insistence to do the world good is still coming at its explosively high price, since a lot of printers don't keep this stock on the floor. How Catch-22 of everything. Anyway. Enjoy.
