By: James O’ConnellA great book can make a life-changing difference.
Florence County bookings were down about 1,000 in the last month, according to the book company that runs the program, Florys Books.
The reason for the decline is the decline in sales of the Florence County edition of the Goosebumps book.
In the last two months, Goosebumpthe book sales have fallen from about 20,000 to about 15,000.
“That was probably the single biggest reason for those declines, because the Goosebump book was sold very few times,” said Flory S. Sibley, the book’s author and publisher.
People are also turning away from Goosebumper because of the lack of interest in the books, said Flury S. Gartner, the author and CEO of Flory Books.
Florys is a division of the publishing giant Penguin Group, which also runs Goosebump’s online publishing program, called Goosebums Book.
Florentine County has about 50,000 Goosebumpls books in print, according the Goosebops website.
Flores book was published in 2016, but Penguin stopped publishing it in 2018.
Penguin announced in May 2018 that it would not be publishing Goosebumpp this year.
Flory Book is a limited edition of 5,000 copies.
Flories Book will continue to sell copies, and it will be available to buy on its website.
Siblio, which is also a Penguin publishing division, will continue selling the book, which it plans to release through the fall.
Flories Book is also available at Barnes & Noble stores, which will continue offering it through the holiday shopping season.
Flowers said the book is “a great way for people to find their place in the world, especially in the times when we are in a time of great turmoil and uncertainty.”
“You can find a lot of good people here, and you can connect with them and feel like you’re not alone,” she said.
“It’s a great book for people who feel like they need a little encouragement.”
