Super Thursday, as it’s known within the publishing industry, is the day publishers launch their biggest titles in preparation for the Christmas market. Almost 300 hardbacks have been published today.
With a great mix of books from big names from the worlds of comedy, sports and food as well as a few up and coming authors and some much loved best-selling authors.
This Super Thursday is a little bit bigger as Amazon have also revealed their top ten pre-ordered books. Sharing a bit more of an insight into what to either expect in your stocking or, place on your Christmas wish list. Offering an insight into some of the wider trends from a full list of titles.
