Population Statistic: Read. React. Repeat.
Thursday, August 26, 2021

Bridget Jones is kicking Fabio’s ass. Harlequin, a publisher long synonymous with trashy romance novels, is facing falling sales due to the siphoning away of its traditional audience by chick-lit and other genres.

Who knew that Harlequin was a Canadian operation? And that it’s run by the owner of the Toronto Star? I’d always assumed that Harelquin was an imprint of HarperCollins or some other traditional publishing powerhouse.

  1. Harlequin now has its own chick-lit imprint - I admit to having read a book therefrom - which suggests to me that at least they can adapt, to some extent.
