In the past decade, similar divergence between book trade growth and overall economic growth could be seen for countries as different as the United Kingdom, a leading English-language market with a huge export business, and France, which, like Germany, is a market strongly dependent on its national consumer base.Are we simply experiencing difficult weather, or do we need to acknowledge the fact of climate change? This is the most succinct way of summarising the debates surrounding the book industry in recent years. The best response to that question might be: We must learn to live in an entirely transformed climate.Publishing is embedded seamlessly between all the other content and media industries, and it has to compete with them for the attention of the consumers. Readers are also always listening to, and watching out for stories that excite them. Authors can speak to readers and to other audiences more directly ?than before. And the consumers are only just starting to learn how to choose from the abundance confronting them. This dramatically changes the publishers’ responsibility. Not only must they carefully curate what they propose to their customers, they must also learn to engage directly with their many different audiences, and? to do so as individually and as profoundly as they can. This is a hard thing to do, certainly, but it is also a rewarding vocation.

This whitepaper includes more about the changing reading habits, how changing cultural practices reframe book markets, where are the books in the new storytelling? To know all about Books: new opportunities, new practices and new roles and how does the outlook on stormy weather or climate change? Our white papers keep you up to date on current topics. If you register, you’ll receive the current edition as soon as it is published.
