Welcome to the Turnaround Blog!
Turnaround has been distributing books into the UK and overseas markets since 1984. As you can imagine, everyone who works here is a veritable book-nut. Hundreds of new books pass through our hands every month, in pretty much every genre you can think of (and some you probably can’t).
We’re incredibly enthusiastic about everything that comes with pages. We spend a lot of the working day talking about books, writing about books, making lists of books, taking pictures of books and going to bookish events.
The Turnaround Blog is a place to share all this with you, whether you’re a publisher, bookseller, reviewer or a general book lover. We post everything from reviews to lists, essays to photos – pretty much anything that relates to the book industry, the amazing titles we work with and/or the people who make them.
Who will be posting?
