Well, chick lit fans. This has been quite a newsy week for our favorite genre. The bad news is that chick lit sales seem to be down. The good news (if you can call it “good”) is that chick lit isn’t the only genre with drooping sales, and relatively speaking, it’s not at all dying.
Here are a few of the stories circulating this week.
- Chick-lit may be staggering on its heels, but it will survive
- Reports of Chick Lit’s Death Are Greatly Exaggerated
- Have we fallen out of love with chick lit?
- What women don’t want: Fears for ‘chick lit’ as sales figures plunge
While you’re at it, chick out this interview with Kathy Lette (I’m sorry, I wasn’t able to embed it here). Do you agree with her conclusion that the “market was flooded” with chick lit?
So? I know it’s a lot to take in, but what do you think?
Please leave a comment and let us know.
Have a great weekend. 🙂
