Here are a few stories to read this Wednesday morning.
- The late F+W media is about to be broken up and sold off to a half-dozen buyers.
- The movie adaptation of "To Kill a Mockingbird" almost erased the lead character from the story.
- LitReactor has a list of 13 books which they claim could not be published in 2019. That is just laughable; with the multitude of small publishers we have now, all of those books would find a home somewhere.
- Mike Shatzkin thinks that B&N needs to survive isn't to copy the Waerstones model but a more sophisticated backend that can handle stocking decisions that can change by the minute.
