BookSurge Adds a Few Hundred Thousand Books to Amazon Catalog

Source: PublishersLunch 11/05/2007
The title count of new books published this year just took an exponential jump: BookSurge has partnered with Ancestry.com to create almost 280,000 on-demand books, called the Our Name in History series, priced at $29.95 and running 98 pages. They chronicle the most common last names from Ancestry.com's archive, "using historical records dating from the 1600s to provide a blend of interesting facts, statistics and commentary" to create "keepsakes about either their own last name or that of their favorite actor, president or media mogul." This afternoon another large-scale print-on-demand project will be announced by a different vendor.
