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.

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.
