We live in a third world country...

So I was reading PW this morning, and there was mention of the debate over in London about what currency to deal in – the pound, the euro, or the dollar. Since the dollar is worth shit nowadays, agents were thinking pound and euro equals bigger royalties. Sweet. On the other hand, deals in dollars mean everything is super cheap for foreign publishers! Oh, kids. I’m depressed. I mean, a few months ago, it was all, ha, Canadians are throwing books at each other, and now…well, I’ve heard rumors that high end stores throughout NYC are starting to accept euros. How long until we’re bartering our free books for a loaf of bread? Happy Monday.
