This month we’ve collected all the freshest literary links making the rounds at the AdBiblio office! Read on for stories about bees, body art, and bots!
In honor of Black History Month, we’re remembering and highlighting a few of the incredible African American trailblazers in books and publishing – including one of the great minds behind Black History Month itself.
If you’re working on expanding the diversity of your TBR stack for Black History Month, you’re not alone. We’ve rounded up a huge selection of Black History Month reading lists from around the web, for adults and kids alike.
Brand awareness may seem like an empty and nebulous buzzword at first glance. It’s no surprise that unambiguous metrics like Clicks and CTR tend to be more popular than “awareness” when determining the success of ad campaigns. (We love clicks and high CTRs as much as the next advertiser!) But does that mean brand awareness is useless for book ads, or could it still be worth your time and ad dollars?
It may not be May anymore but we still think you may enjoy these literary links from May. (OK I’ll stop now… maybe.)
Netflix announced its first comic book with a trailer. The Magic Order will be a miniseries of 6 issues, and you’ll need to grab them quick once they arrive in comic book stores on June 13th – there won’t be a second printing regardless of sales.
Q: What do you get when you combine a murder mystery, an eccentric amateur sleuth, and the stunning backdrop of Sicily?

Auntie Poldi and the Sicilian Lions by Mario Giordano tells the story of Auntie Poldi, a 60 year old German widow who retires to Sicily “…intending to drink herself comfortably to death with a sea view” – so basically living out my personal retirement fantasy. But when her handsome young handyman turns up dead, Poldi vows to get to the bottom of the case.
This is a post about books and publishing, so naturally I’m kicking it off with… GQ? There’s been a lot of backlash over GQ’s recent list of 21 Books You Don’t Have To Read, which included The Holy Bible. Frankly I’m just a little scared because I never even realized there are books I do have to read. I’ve been assuming all those voicemails about the local police coming to arrest me were spam calls, but now I’m not so sure. Does anyone have an extra copy of the required reading list I can borrow?
By this point in the blog series you know that here at AdBiblio, we think CTV technology and advertising is really cool. The combination of the traditional TV commercial format with AdBiblio’s precision targeting (demographics, interests, geo-locations, and days & times) creates a fantastic opportunity to expand your campaign’s visibility and impact.
But that doesn’t mean Connected TV is right for every campaign.
Welcome to Part 2 of our Connected TV series! If you missed Part 1, make sure to check it out here.
Given the rapid growth and popularity of Connected TV, it’s no surprise that advertising on CTV is also starting to gain traction – and we’re extremely excited make this tech available to you!

Let’s clear it up!
