    Podcast: Don't Touch That Adverb

    Today, Jon Yang and I discuss the recent controversy surrounding the ALA (American Library Association) annual conference, and the conflict that is emerging between librarians and book bloggers, nicknamed “ARCGate.” Some helpful links for you as you listen:

    -What is an ARC?

    -The blog post that started it all–“The ARC stops here” on

    -Lost Lola’s apology and explanation for the 22-minute book haul video referenced above

    Jon and I debate who’s in the right, discuss the emerging role of book bloggers, and speculate what the ALA might do to prevent this conflict in the future.
