Seth Godin Quit & Haruki Murakami Adapted: Top 10 Stories of August 2010

In August, author Seth Godin rocked the publishing world when he announced he would no longer work with traditional publishers. That same month, we created a Women in Publishing Twitter directory and discovered a trailer for an upcoming Haruki Murakami adaptation.

Instead of doing our traditional year-in-review post, we’ve decided to collect the ten most popular stories on GalleyCat each month–sharing the stories that mattered most to our readers. Looking back at these headlines, we can see the hopes, fears, and distractions that obsessed the publishing industry in 2010. Follow this link to see the rest of the year unfold.
