If you are a reading aficionado, you would agree that nothing can bring that 180 degree of smile than laying hands on the new book in town. To avid readers, the fragrance of a new book is like that of an aged-old perfume and the ruffle of the pages like a bird singing its merry song. Books have been man’s best friend since times immemorial. While book reading seems to have dipped low thanks to the emergence of new technology and e-books, if you go by the records, you would hardly believe the same. Book publishing business is rapidly and consistently developing since the past centuries. American publishers have gained the top spot when it comes to counting global leaders in the publishing business. Thomson/Reuters take up the 3rd spot in the world ranking of world’s top publishers. Random House has consistently been the largest publisher of trade books. American publisher Cengage Learning, headquartered in Boston Massachusetts, is an educational content, technology, and services company, catering to the higher education and professional and library markets worldwide. Other prominent American publishers include Scholastic Inc, Nature America, and so on. Check this segment to find in details about American publishing houses and famous American publishers.
