Booket was launched in the year 2001 as the Grupo Planeta imprint for pocket editions. An imprint aimed at the general public, designed to foster reading habits, and that includes the greatest and widest range of authors and contents selected from the Grupo Planeta publishing imprints (Alienta, Ariel, Crítica, Destino, Ediciones del Bronce, Editorial Planeta, Emecé, Esencia, Editorial Espasa, Gestión 2000, Martínez Roca, Minotauro, Paidós, Seix Barral, Temas de Hoy and Zenith), paying special attention to those titles that have become a true publishing phenomenon.
The pocket edition, due to the very nature of its format, responds perfectly to the demands in terms of quality, breadth of contents, consumer convenience and affordable price made by today’s readers. The main challenge for Booket is to grow and strengthen this market. Booket publishes and guarantees the broadest selection of contemporary authors, prominently including Carlos Ruiz Zafón, Eduardo Mendoza, Paulo Coelho, Lucía Etxebarria, Matilde Asensi, Boris Izaguirre, Federico Moccia, Javier Sierra, Reyes Monforte, Juan José Millás, Javier Moro and Juan Eslava Galán.
An excellent editorial selection, careful, attractive and innovative design, an affordable price, all added to a catalogue that covers all the literary genres hand in hand with the most renowned authors.
For all these reasons, Booket is now the leading pocket imprint for Spanish readers and booksellers.
