Scott Pack set to join The Friday Project

Scott Pack, cur­rently head buy­er for the UK book­chain Waterstone’s, emailed me to say to he’s about to take up a post with The Friday Project, a pub­lish­er that (accord­ing to their web­site) seems to spe­cial­ize in turn­ing blogs into books. It’s not an idea that sets my world on fire, but they’ve obvi­ously attrac­ted Scott, whose prob­ably didn’t to be head buy­er at Waterstone’s without a fairly sharp busi­ness brain. I expect we’ll be hear­ing more of The Friday Project, and Mr Pack, in the near future. Check out this press release for more details. Oh, and The Friday Project has a blog.

  1. There’s some­thing about this that smells of van­ity pub­lish­ing, or sub­sidy pub­lish­ing, or the like. And it’s def­in­itely jump­ing on the blook band­wag­on.

    File under ‘Hmmm…’ for the moment, unless or until someone can show me a sample con­tract…

  2. Hmmm… x2

    If you want to know about the con­tracts, have a look at the com­ments from the Guardian blog — “you write it for free, so you can let us pub­lish it for free”!

    I hear the sound of a thou­sand Oxfam shops clear­ing their shelves.
