Book Returns

So it turns out people still buy books: “For all of the Sturm und Drang accompanying the change, publishing in 2010 was as profitable as it has ever been.”

For 2009-2010 Penguin had “record earnings” and Random House saw “its largest increase in sales since 2006.”

So as long as people keep writing about heaven and dogs, and Chelsea Handler and Tucker Max don’t quit drinking, everything is going to be okay.
