BLOOMSBURY SALES ON TARGET FOR 2010

UK PUBLISHING house Bloomsbury has said that its 2010 trading figures are in line with expectations. Including US sales, it said year-end cash is likely to total around £34.2m.

The publisher has been boosted this year by strong sales of Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert, a film version of which was released in September starring Julia Roberts and Javier Bardem (pictured).
