E-Reading on the Rise

“E-reading is certainly on the rise. The Pew Research Center reports that, as recently as 2010, hardly anyone in the US had an e-reader or tablet. Now half do. The proportion of the population who have read an ebook in the past year rose from 17 per cent in 2011 to 28 per cent just three years later. In the UK, figures from Nielsen, which monitors book sales, showed that one in four consumer titles bought in 2013 was an ebook, up from one in five a year earlier.”

The Sidewalk Singer

I have just purchased The Sidewalk Singer. It’s in the mail and coming my way. Here is the trailer:

Alan Maki wrote and produced this movie and the music that is in it. He is also the lead actor. He’s quite the guy! I’ve known him for several years since he became the pastor of Bethany Baptist Church in Gunnison, CO — a church that I planted/pastored many years ago. Alan is also an excellent author.

The Dove Foundation gave The Sidewalk Singer “Five Doves all the way!” and called it “a triumph.” If you are interested, links to his movie and one of his books are found below.

Here’s more from Alan:

The Cat Lady of Highland Park

I have a close friend who, using the pen name “Robert Blaine,” has written a captivating memoir. It is available at Amazon.com as an eBook or a paperback. I recommend it!
