~This Week's Question:

What have you learned from book blogging that you didn't know before about the publishing industry?

~My Answer:
One thing would be that their are SO many publishing companies! Like seriously. I thought maybe a handleful and I guess techniqually there is. There are a handful of MAJOR industries but beyond Harper Collins, Random House, Penguin, Macmillan and Sourcebooks there are many upon many publishers. And then!! Upon that, there are so many sub publishers linked off the big publishing companies: Philomol, HarperTeen, etc. When I first found this out I got to admit....I was overwhelmed. I mean, how do I even begin to know you to contact!!? O.o I had to create a binder listing all the publishers and under them the sub genres...without that binder...I would be lost hahaha

What about you?
(Bonus question: for all of you overwhelmed with the overdose of do you cope? Do you have a binder too?)

  4. Old follower. The first time I realized that was when I first visited net galley and browsed the site by publishers. The list may as well had been in latin. I only recognized the majors. I don't have a binder to keep track though, but its not a bad idea if I didn't have the memory of a 90 year old.

  5. I haven't worked up the courage to be overwhelmed yet. Old follower on the GFC but new on the other links

  7. OK, I LOVE the fact that you are so organized! I need to take a lesson from you and make my own binder. New GFC follower:)

  8. The amount of publishers is still overwhelming for me, especially when they are slightly different from the publishers we have here. I might do the same and make a list on my own, great idea!


  9. Yeah there are a lot. It can be kind of overwhelming! Old follower here. Have a merry Christmas! :D
