Book Market -- Mixed Bag May Continue

December 2003
By Erik Cagle

Senior Editor

Try summing up the 2003 season from the book printing market's point of view. It can't be done.

Sure, another Potter tome and the return of Oprah's book club did wonders for a struggling trade market, and most feel the elementary-high school (el-hi) sector was as depressed as the economy, with weak adoption programs to match. But, for the most part, the answers to what worked and what didn't pan out depends largely upon who is being asked.
