Urbanites nostalgic about childhood camping trips — or wanting to try tent camping for the first time — are often daunted by logistical challenges, like figuring out where to go and what to bring, as well as anxieties about diving headlong into the unfamiliar wilderness.
Fear not. For those more accustomed to navigating highways than wooded trails, a wealth of online resources, a new generation of camping equipment and a national network of user-friendly campsites make reserving a place to pitch a tent easier than getting around highway construction closings.
Stephen King, Nora Roberts and Donna Tartt are among the hundreds of authors who have added their names to an online letter criticizing Amazon.com for restricting access to works published by Hachette Book Group.
The letter, initiated by Hachette author Douglas Preston, urged Amazon to resolve its standoff with Hachette over e-book prices and other issues.
