So, I bet you heard about the merger between Penguin and Random House. You've probably already blogged about it, too. I'm always the last to know. Okay. Maybe I wasn't completely in the dark. Thing were hinted at during our Pearson review of textbooks (though it was a different publishing house when I heard of a potential merger). Not that I have a stake in any house what-so-ever. *Tear*
Every day I am more amazed with the changing climate of the publishing world. It makes me wonder how many other larger publishing houses are going to merge in order to stay in the black.
The new venture will now be called Penguin Random House if the deal is approved (pending approval...see article link). Come on, guys! You are two publishing giants and that's the most creative name you could come up with? Sheesh.
I thought I would make up a couple names and send them in. Just kidding.
Or am I?
Random Penguin, anyone? What about House of the Penguin? Or Pandom Renguin?
Here's the link if you're interested!
