Our visit to Gardners Books

Last week we drove over to Eastbourne to visit Gardners Books, the country’s leading book wholesaler. Gardners are one of our biggest customers in the UK and we aim to visit twice a year to keep up-to-date on how our books are selling and discuss further marketing opportunities. Every time we go we are interested to look at the bestsellers report to see which of our titles are the most popular.

For the last 12 months our top titles were:

1. Foundations of Bilingual Education and Bilingualism  (5th ed.) by Colin Baker

2. A Parents’ and Teachers’ Guide to Bilingualism (3rd ed.) by Colin Baker

3. Motivation, Language Identity and the L2 Self edited by Zoltán Dörnyei and Ema Ushioda

4. The Idea of English in Japan by Philip Seargeant

5. Identity, Motivation and Autonomy in Language Learning edited by Garold Murray, Xuesong Gao and Terry Lamb

6. Cultural Heritage and Tourism by Dallen J. Timothy

7. L2 Interactional Competence and Development edited by Joan Kelly Hall, John Hellermann and Simona Pekarek Doehler

8. The Darker Side of Travel edited by Richard Sharpley and Philip Stone

9. Measuring Second Language Vocabulary Acquisition by James Milton

10. Literary Translation by Clifford Landers

While in Eastbourne we managed to fit in a little expedition to the seafront and spotted a very familiar street name which we just had to take a photo of!
