S&S has reported that they have generated $206 million for the second quarter of 2017, which is an increase of 10% from $187 million for the same prior-year period. The increase was led by growth in print book sales and digital audio sales. Bestselling titles for the second quarter of 2017 included Lord of Shadows by Cassandra Clare and I Can’t Make This Up by Kevin Hart.
Publishing operating income of $28 million for the second quarter of 2017 increased 8% from $26 million for the same prior-year period, mainly reflecting the revenue growth.
CBS CEO Les Moonves said he was excited for upcoming books from Tom Brady and Hillary Clinton that will be released later this year.
