In addition to a huge number of teen books being published every year, teen books are getting HUGE!
The stack on the left contains ten books that are typical of the length of books when we first opened the Teen Zone ten years ago.
The stack on the right also contains ten books, but these are more recent books (in fact half of them are off the new book display).
Look at how much taller the stack of new books is - crazy, huh?
And a lot of these books are a part of a series of three or more books.
And they said that teens don't read anymore... what do they know?
