– Intro –
Welcome to the Backlist Blast info page! This is a weekly book meme which was created by Milana from A Couple Reads and myself (Flavia from Flavia the Bibliophile), and which is hosted on both of our blogs! The main purpose of this book blog meme is to feature and discuss backlist books! To find out what we mean by backlist books, and for more details about the meme, please continue reading!
– About –
Milana and I had been talking about making a meme or event together for some time, and after a quite some time after we had decided to co-op on something like that, Milana approached me with the idea that we make a weekly meme through which participants can feature and discuss backlist books (a.k.a. books which are no longer considered to be “on sale”). To be more clear (since Milana and myself are publishing students and working in the publishing industry, and don’t want to take this knowledge for granted), what we mean by backlist books is, any titles that we published 6 months ago or earlier.
As an example, any books published in January 2018, cannot be used for the meme until July 2018. The bottom line is that we made this meme so that we can give some attention to backlist books as well (such as past favourites, or TBR books that we haven’t gotten to yet).
