Comment power!

Wonder if your comments are heard? John Green, Kaite Mediatore Stover, Nora Rawlinson, and I responded to Keir Graff as he posed the comment question during the “Books and Blogs: Made for Each Other?” session at the American Library Association’s annual conference. Of course I recorded the session for you audiophiles, available here 😉

The general feeling of the session participants was that blog readers are commenting less these days, not so much from lack of interest but because of the ever-increasing flood of information. But there are times when comments create results. Here’s an example for Audiobooker readers: AppSessions responds to your concerns posted as comments to this post on text-synchronized audiobooks. If you’ve experienced problems with iClassix, here’s what to do:

Hello everyone. I am the managing partner at appSessions. I am so sorry to hear about the scroll issue. We are in the process of completely revamping our software. I assure all of you that once these updates are complete, you will all be pleased with the result. You will all get an upgrade of the current book you have on the iPhone. Secondly, because of the inconvenience, I would like to offer all of you on the this board who have had issues to please email me once the update is complete and I will offer you a complementry title of your choice. We are here to provide you with the best reading experience and once these updates are complete, I am sure you will agree with me on this notion. I am sorry about the problems, but rest assure, these will be resolved in a few weeks time. Please email me with any questions and or concerns.

Thank you.
