Bookbits for July 19th, 2008

No bookbits for the next three/four weeks as I’ll be awaaaaaaay (unless Hayley of course finds some urgent piece of news somewhere)(and the time to post it).  These are a little brief at times, but then, it’s late.  🙂

  • Age-branding on children’s books is a hot topic at the moment.  A majority of children’s authors is against it.  I think it would be handy for those customers coming in to buy a gift, but perhaps children/youngsters might find it deterring rather than helpful.  A twelve year-old might ignore a book that has 9+ stamped on its side whereas now they might just go for it on the basis of the story.  What do you think?

Happy holiday everyone!
