Here it is, the last issue of 2014. Read on, fellow adventurers, for noteworthy news, book sales, and more! Do you enjoy owning and reading ebooks without DRM? Do you like buying books on sale? Book View Cafe is having a half-off Boxing Week Sale! Featured authors include Sherwood Smith, Ursula K. Le Guin, Madeleine Robins, Jeffrey A. Carver, and Katherine Eliska Kimbriel.

How to make sure your library contains booklice-devouring book scorpions, from Book Riot.

Jo Walton on how her ebook reader changed (and didn’t change) her reading habits, from Tor.com.

A review of 2014 in comics, from Pornokitsch. The ones I want to read? Saga, Ms. Marvel, and Sex Criminals.

Musings on the importance of reading local, again, from Book Riot.

The New York Times reviews How to be a Victorian: A Dawn-to-Dusk Guideby Ruth Goodman. Apparently, it strips all the romanticism from our rose-colored view of the Victorian era.

Happy New Year, all!
