Phil Bradley's weblog To the Chair of a professional library interest group, I’m angry, depressed, sad and disappointed that I need to write this open letter to you. You sent a member of your group onto two courses that I ran, and the total cost was £198. I try and keep my costs as cheap as I can because I think making sure we have well trained and informed professionals is important. My invoices state that I wish to be paid within 30 days, and this is something that almost all of my clients are able to do without issue – sometimes within hours of receiving their invoice I’m paid. If I don’t get paid inside my 30 days I’ve then got to decide what to do next. Let me explain something at this point. So, what should I do now?

Tools of Change for Publishing - Insight, Events, Resources The Bookseller 100 29.11.11 | Tom Tivnan and Bookseller Staff If there is one thing we can count on in The Bookseller 100, it is change. This is our third annual list of the top movers and shakers in the book trade, and for the second year in a row there are a number of new faces—37 in 2011 (and four re-entries), up from 36 new names in 2010. It is a difficult process because we have so many to choose from. In the selection meetings we came up with approximately 300 people within (and without) the trade who have an influence on the book industry who would have a legitimate shot at getting onto our list. Suzy Astbury, as m.d. of leading recruiting firm Inspired Selection, knows a thing or two about what it takes to get a top job in the book trade. Ground rules One of our main criteria is that this is a UK list, with entrants having to be based in Britain for most of the year. There is a one person per entry rule.
