E-books, kids and the genre of ‘learning to read’

E-books, kids and the genre of ‘learning to read’ | Pobre Gutenberg | Scoop.it
I have written before about learn-to-read apps and other kid-focused goodies. But getting a kid ready to read actual, text-based stories is a more involved process than we sometimes realize. One of my little loved ones recently came home with a booklet he made at school which was all about the letter A, for instance. We asked him if there were going to be some other books too, and he confidently replied that there were not. They cut the pages, they stapled them, it went into the special folder, and that was it. DONE! Poor little guy has no idea what he is in for!

PubWest Concludes Vibrant 2016 Conference | Pobre Gutenberg | Scoop.it
Over the weekend, Santa Fe's La Fonda on the Plaza hotel welcomed 180 publishers and other industry members to PubWest's annual conference. Attendance was up at the February 4-6 event thanks, show organizers think, to a timing change.

What apps next? Publishers and developers embrace 'unprintable' fiction | Pobre Gutenberg | Scoop.it
Publisher Anna Gerber isn’t trying to kill off the printed book – she’d just like you to spend a bit more time on your mobile. “We don’t really think the point is to change the way we read,” she says, “but we do like the idea of trying to immerse readers in books on their phones.”

The ebook market in 2016: AAP StatShots, clean slate, no Fire?

The ebook market in 2016: AAP StatShots, clean slate, no Fire? | Pobre Gutenberg | Scoop.it
The latest Association of American Publishers (AAP) StatShot for the first three quarters of 2015 is a chance to take the measure of traditional publishing’s market. It also is a chance to test some of the predictions made by Big Publishing at the end of last year, when the previous StatShot came out. And some of those predictions appear to reveal more about the sources than the market – in particular, their haste to spin falling ebook sales into an indictment of everyone except themselves.

January is a great time to talk about children’s books, what with the aftermath of the MidWinter ALA and its accompanying Newbery, Caldecott, and other awards, presented earlier in the month. While publishing for the adult market has its rewards and sense of community, children’s publishing has an infectious enthusiasm and sense of mission that is made manifest at ALA.

This April, for the first time in a decade, Phaidon Press will publish a vegetarian-only cookbook—in fact, it’ll publish three of them: Salma Hage’s The Middle Eastern Vegetarian Cookbook, artist Olafur Eliasson’s Studio Olafur Eliasson: The Kitchen, and chef Solla Eiríksdóttir’s Raw: Recipes for a Modern Vegetarian Lifestyle. The publisher’s plant-heavy spring lineup suggests it’s taking a gamble on veg—but why, and why now? PW spoke with Emilia Terragni, Phaidon’s cookbook publisher, to find out.

The decline of iPad sales may herald the rise of the phablet as e-reader

The decline of iPad sales may herald the rise of the phablet as e-reader | Pobre Gutenberg | Scoop.it
Arends lays the blame for the iPad’s faltering performance at the feet of its only-slightly-smaller cousin, the “phablet”-sized iPhone 6s and 6s plus. Customers seem to be turning away from the iPad in favor of a phablet. It puzzles him, given that the iPhones cost so much for seemingly so little, but then he admits to not having an iPhone of any kind himself, though he does have an iPad mini and an Apple TV.

Dalang Publishing: Introducing Indonesian Historical Fiction to the U.S. | Pobre Gutenberg | Scoop.it
Translation is finding new energy in the world industry: after all, digital makes borders more porous than ever, foreign markets more enticing. But translation is expensive, difficult to do well, and frequently hard to sell in distant markets unless you have sales forces on the ground. What’s more, translators frequently must agitate for proper acknowledgment and metadata inclusion. All the more reason to applaud California-based publisher Lian Gouw, 82. She refers to herself as a “watch-outer,” looking out for her translators’ interests as avidly as she does those of her authors. —Porter Anderson
