Each Monday, here on Editor's Corner, I run through the latest issue of the Bookseller magazine and pick out the bits and pieces of book industry news that catch my eye.
This quick round-up of book stuff is mainly culled from the Bookseller magazine (Friday February 19th issue):
- publishers "have rallied behind Publishing Scotland (PS), describing a Scottish government think-tank's recommendations of merging it with the Independent Publishers Guild (IPG) as 'absolute nonsense'"
- the Diagram Prize shortlist has been announced -- see details here
- Dominic Myers "Waterstone's new managing director, will give his first address to the book trade at this year's Book Industry Conference. [He will be part of] a panel delivering a state of the industry overview"
- Lee Child and Joanne Harris "are among authors appearing at a Random House Transworld book festival, in what is believed to be the first such event run by a publisher"
- the Google Settlement "will offer 'greater legal security' to UK pubishers if it is approved by US Courts, the Publishers Association has said"
- adminstrators have admitted "it is unlikely that 12 Wesley Owen stores will find a buyer, with its parent company IBS-STL owing trade creditors almost £2.5m, according to the administrators' report"
- members of the Irish union Siptu "have voted to back Irish bookseller Eason's proposals to defer bonuses for 2009"
- Snowbooks "made a profit of more than £14,000 last financial year, down from £17,000 in 2008, despite turnover dropping by roughly 25%"
- authors "including Michael Rosen, Jacqueline Wilson and Sharon Osbourne will be taking part in nationwide events to celebrate World Book Day on 4th March"
- more than "100 jobs are on the line at Reader's Digest Association UK after it went into administration on Wednesday due to problems with pensions deficit"
