Dear Colleagues,
Baker & Taylor is pleased to present its Fall 2013 Trends catalog. Our buying staff reviews hundreds of titles each season and they are in the
unique position of seeing what is available across all categories from all publishers. We thought it might be very beneficial for our customers
to share in our curated list.
Each title has been specially selected by our buyers for its aptness and appeal across markets. When appropriate, our buyers have
highlighted titles in blue that they feel warrant special attention as truly cream of the crop for that category. We predict these titles are sure
to receive review attention and high visibility in the marketplace. In select subjects we have included recently published titles to round out
the selection of forthcoming titles to create a robust assortment. A note on the eISBNs: for many publishers, the eISBN is not available until
very close to publication date so we have included what information we have to date.
This full-color catalog, which will be produced twice per year, covers a wide and varied range of topics as well as what’s new and hot in both
children’s and adult titles for both books and entertainment. We will be posting the trends package on the Baker & Taylor website (www.
baker-taylor.com).
We hope you find this package an invaluable resource and please feel free to pass along comments or suggestions on what you would like to
see us do to make the trends packet fit your needs.
Read and enjoy!

“New Adult” is a genre that has developed within the fiction and romance categories over the past few years to
bridge the gap between young adult and adult novels. Protagonists are generally post-high school age, attending
college or living on their own for the first time. Since this is such a transitional age, themes focus on new-found
freedom, sexuality/loss of innocence, and fear of failure. New Adult novels capture the same intense emotionality
that YA has but in a mature environment. Watch out for the New Adult genre; it is growing steadily, just as its
characters are.
