Publishing Takes a Break: Summer Fridays Begin

Time to relax post-BEA—summer Fridays, the publishing world’s traditional long weekends, start today. So! Pack the many free totes you collected with some (non-required??) reading and head for the Jitney now.

Or seek out a more creative destination. Knopf publicity director Paul Bogaards, who had a pretty good week with the new Stieg Larsson, said that he wasn’t much of a Hamptons-goer.

“I have a preference for more remote locales, and am in fact en route to a golf tournament where I am going to take a page out of salander’s playbook and beat my opponent into the ground,” he wrote, in a message sent from his iPhone.

Bon voyage!
