Authors fed up with publishers' rejection slips, and readers hunting for new material will welcome the launch of Kiwi online publisher bookhabit.com.

Many will be relieved just to be there, given a fortnight ago the Writers' strike was threatening to scupper the event, as it did the celebrity bash at the Golden Globes, which stars refused to cross the picket lines to attend.
So the buzz and air of expectation is already strong, before any of the Oscars have been handed out!
