Video: Random House Makes A Book

A view at the Random House shop:




Many people work behind the scenes at Random House to bring each book to the widest possible audience. Here, you'll meet some of them and learn more about what's involved, from editorial and design through production, marketing, sales, and distribution.

Some New Techie/literary stuff:

HarperCollins has released a “Browse Inside” widget that simply opens the Browse Inside feature in a new window (example), while the Random House widget is a bit more advanced: it lets you browse the pages of the book in the widget itself, and even pop out a large window so you can actually read the book as a slideshow.



Even better: they’ve provided an option to copy the widget without leaving the page you’re on, and a “buy” link to buy the book on the publisher’s site. There’s also a book search to find other Random House books. Rupert Murdoch may own HarperCollins and MySpace, but RandomHouse is outshining them when it comes to widgets.



Both services also launched online book searches this week, suggesting that they’re finally getting to grips with this whole Internet thing (who knows - maybe it’ll catch on? ). Other socially networked book services include GoodReads, Shelfari, LibraryThing and the Bebo
Bookstore

Help Children Read, One book Donated per Email


It’s the Cat’s Big 5-0!

Here’s how to celebrate.

• To honor “The Cat in the Hat’s” 50th birthday, send him an e-mail birthday card. For every card the cat gets, Random House will donate a new book to First Book, a nonprofit organization that promotes reading in low-income communities.

Since it was founded in 1992, First Book has distributed more than 40 million books to young readers in 1,300 communities around the country. To send a card, go to www.seussville.com/CITH_50th/

Cards must be received by May 1.

Random House will also donate a new book to First Book for every copy of any Dr. Seuss book it sells before May 1. For more details, go to www.catinthehat.com.
