Today is World Social Media Day, which marks the last day of the Winter 2019 edition of Jolabokaflod CIC’s Book Bulletin. We choose this day to close the book on our annual catalogue every year as the end of June completes the first half of the year, when all the titles in publishers’ Spring catalogues (January to June) – often promoted at the London Book Fair – have been released.
To celebrate the moment when the next edition of the Book Bulletin will start to be compiled – from 1 July 2020 onwards – we are choosing this time to launch our Summer Recommendations campaign on social media. Led by curated content on Instagram at @Jolabokaflod_cic, in two week-long series – My Top 7 Summer Recommendations and My Favourite Summer Read – we are re-engaging with digital and social media in a regular and systematic way.
Welcome to the start of the next issue of our Book Bulletin, which will be filled with your recommendations for the period 1 July 2020 to 30 June 2021, giving you plenty of great ideas for gifts to give loved ones for Christmas, summer holidays, birthdays, anniversaries and every other type of special occasion.
