Publishing revenue at Simon and Schuster brought in $279 million dollars in the 3rd quarter, which was a 29% increase from the same period last year. The last time the company had this strong of a quarter was close to 3 years ago. One of the big reasons of the increase was higher print and digital book sales that were driven by strong releases. Bestselling titles for the quarter included Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World’s Most Dangerous Man by Mary Trump and Rage by Bob Woodward.
