So Many Books ...

Manuel Ramos

The Rocky Mountain News (August 13, 2005) reports that Amazon.com reports that there are 83,000 U.S. publishers with at least one book in circulation, and that in 2004, 195,000 new titles were published in the U.S., up from 114,000 a decade earlier. Sheesh. Who says books are a thing of the past?

How encouraging are those numbers? 114K cf 195K of new titles! Met a fellow last night briefly, Praeger's publishing his urban planning book about chicana chicano housing and planning issues.

Mas, check out La Bloga's "Author" links screen left. May the list grow & grow. Ni modo the imprint, publish! raza.
