Random House and Penguin now the world's largest consumer book publisher.

Reblogged from Books2day:

The last details in the merger between Random House and Penguin were finalized on July 1st, creating the largest consumer book publishing company in the world.


The new name will be "Penguin Random House" though I was hoping for something like "Random Penguin" or just "Penguin House."


Here is a press release with the details on the merger and a list of the fiefdoms handed out to the various lords and princes who will rule over 10,000 employees, 15,000 titles and 250 imprints. That's a big kingdom to run.
