The Book Publicity Blog

News, Tips, Trends and Miscellany for Book Publicists

Morning Brief

The popular How to Change the World blog posts some information about how social networking actually works.  For those of you who have yet to sign up for a social networking profile, try Facebook first — we’re pretty much all on there.  (Although MySpace is still the biggest social networking site, Facebook and other sites are growing much faster.)

I read a post this morning on Booksquare about the future of reading/books and I wasn’t initially going to link to it here, but then I read a second post by on the same topic on the Penguin blog.  Kassia Krozser on Booksquare focuses more on youth online and the ramifications that has for us as publishers who will one day be trying to sell to that market; Clay Shirkey on the Penguin blog writes more about the logistical inconveniences of books.  Given that many tweets (that would be people who use Twitter) today consider email too troublesome, we should think long and hard about what Krozser and Shirkey are saying.

There’s been a lot of talk about book trailers lately.  If you haven’t already seen it, you may want to check the book trailer channel on YouTube.
