HNT - Speed Reading

We haven't even put it into full operation yet (we're still learning how to use it, testing out different paper stocks and getting comfortable with the operation of the machine), but the word is starting to spread that the Espresso Book Machine has arrived at McMaster.

Yesterday, Wade Hemsworth (McMaster Alumnus) was at our store checking out the newly arrived EBM from On Demand Books of New York (which we have dubbed: "McMaster Innovation Press" and chatting with Donna Shapiro (my boss and store director) and I about it. Donna and I have been working really hard for the past half year at trying to get the EBM at our store and we're quite thrilled now that it has arrived and we'll soon be able to offer Titles on Demand.

Wade's article appears in today's Hamilton Spectator which I have yet to see in print. But there is an article online.

Here's the photo that ran along with the article.

I read the article. That is so cool! Is it also a way for a budding author to get books sold without having to go through a publisher?

Washing machine technology was developed as a way to reduce the drudgery of this scrubbing and

rubbing process, by providing an open basin or sealed container with paddles or fingers to

automatically agitate the clothing.Machines

The earliest machines were often hand-operated but were built with the belief that the machine

itself was faster and easier to operate than washing the clothing by hand directly.
