VNU Debuts Book Standard

Share this article:
Trade magazine publisher VNU Business Media announced yesterday the launch of a Web site for the book publishing industry.


Content on thebookstandard.com includes breaking news, first-look book reviews, proprietary charts, searchable databases and expert analysis.


The site results from cooperation between VNU Business Media -- which publishes Billboard, The Hollywood Reporter, The Bookseller, Kirkus Review, Editor & Publisher and Adweek, among other business-to-business publications -- and VNU's Nielsen Bookscan, a point-of-sale-based retail sales monitoring service for books covering 6,000 locations nationwide.


Some content will be free, with the rest available by subscription for $9.95 monthly. Full access includes complete chart information, extensive databases and industry contacts.
