The first Thursday in October is always the busiest time of year in publishing – the day more books come out than on any other. But this year is extra special given the huge backlog of titles that were put on hold due to the coronavirus lockdown.
But now, with bookshops finally open again and Christmas fast approaching, a rush of new hardbacks, paperbacks and e-books is set to hit the shelves today – from David Attenborough's hotly awaited memoir to Jeanette Winterson's retelling of Hansel and Gretel for the climate crisis.
