Frankfurt Show Daily for Thursday, 11 October 2012

On the second day of the 2012 Frankfurt Book Fair, our show daily features news, buzz and photos from around the halls. Read about e-commerce in the Arab World, Kobo’s partnership with Mondadori in Italy, and Hay Festival Director Peter Florence’s first impressions as a “frankfurt virgin.” Has e-book adoption reached a plateau in the UK, and are e-books finally getting started in France?

Read about why there is a growing demand for English language books in Brazil, Penguin’s partial acquisition of Companhia das Letras, and get a sneak preview of Brazil’s appearance as Guest of Honor at the 2013 Frankfurt Book Fair. You’ll also find a list of important contacts in Brazil, as well as descriptions of Brazil’s major publishing houses.
