Uruguay’s Night of the Bookstores. Who says Latinos don’t read?

tnps_ibero-america
Uruguay just held its first Night of the Bookstores.
 
Earlier this year Argentina held its tenth Night of the Bookstores.
 
As we all know, Latinos don’t read, so clearly the 1.2 million visitors to the Buenos Aires Int. Book Fair this year is a typo, the tens of thousands that turned up to the Buenos Aires Night of the Bookstores is a typo, and it’s totally not true that Buenos Aries has more bookstore per capita than any other city in the world.
 
Except, it is true, and that 1.2 million visitors is no typo. Nor is the tens of thousands attending the Night of the Bookstores event.
 
Demolishing the false narrative that Latinos don’t read, over at The New Publishing Standard today.

The Hot Sheet Reviewed – second November edition

tnps_publishing brief
Another two weeks somehow have passed by and it’s The Hot Sheet Reviewed yet again over at The New Publishing Standard.
 
In the TNPS headlights this time is the demise of Pronoun, the departure of Mark Leslie Lefebvre from Kobo, and a (ever so polite) disagreement with Porter Anderson and Jane Friedman over what the Tencent IPO means for the publishing industry.
 
Lots more over at The New Publishing Standard.
