Christmas Dreams: 503 titles hit UK bookstores the same day

From the Guardian:

Quote:

The clues are in the announcement of more than 500 titles to be published on Super Thursday, 8 October, the publishing industry’s major assault on the Christmas market, previewed inFriday’s Bookseller.

The date will also see the launch of the third annual Books Are My Bag, a celebration of books and bookshops, with events including signings and readings across the UK and Ireland. The artist Grayson Perry has designed a limited edition bookbag, following last year’s sell-out version by Tracy Emin, and there will also be a children’s version featuring the Charlie and Lola characters of Lauren Child.

This year 503 books will be published in hardback on Super Thursday, twice as many as in an average week, and 300 more than than in the following week.
Oh, those poor front tables!
