B&B: Another Anniversary Book to be released


Recommended Posts

  • Members

Finally: confirmation.

I was giddy with anticipation ever since I read first rumors 6 weeks ago or so and now Ashley Jones stated obiter that B&B is indeed releasing it’s second ever compendium.

Following the tradition of the fabulous “The Bold And The Beautiful: A Tenth Anniversary Celebration”, which was published in 1996, this August (?) a new version celebrating two decades of bold & beautiful glamour will hit stores.

And I can’t wait to spend my money on this. Amazon may list this ASAP and I’ll order express shipment. Hell, I’d even bribe someone to get this early.

Thank god, no one that knows me personal is reading here. Cause I’m known as one tremendous miser. LOL!

Quoting Ashley Jones (Bridget): "That also includes the B&B 20th Anniversary book." :)

Kewlness, I'll probably get it. I need to fill in some gaps from certain years I stopped watching.

I hope DAYS and others released updated books. I loved how all the soaps released anniversary books in the 90's... back when soaps were more marketable... :::sigh:::

Yeah. I have the ATWT book, AW book, DAYS book and GH book. I had the GL book but It fell apart a year or two ago. I found most off ebay really cheap and in great condition. I just bid on the AMC book and won it so I can't wait to get it.

B&B is hopefully a trendsetter - they can also most easily merchandise it with their worldwide appeal.

The first edition was great. Design-wise Y&R's Silver book is incomparable but content-wise I think Robert Waldron (B&B-book author) achieved a great mix of yearly summaries, very insightful behind-the-scenes-stuff, and quotes and pics from the cast.

Maybe he's writing again or former SOD-writer and recently freelancer for Variety, Michael Malone, got the job. Can't wait for this. They just need to release an official statement

Winsor Harmon confirmed too that the book was to be launched.

Do you remember when and where he said it?

I can also only recommend eBay: You get all the soap books extremely cheap there - and so far mine have been always close to mint-quality...

    • Looking at that list, I highly doubt it.  That list is full of the most mainstream programming on streaming.  While I am sure DAYS does well enough, there is no way it reaches the kind of streaming numbers stuff like Wednesday and Yellowstone are getting.
    • Many have noted that Soap Opera Digest seems to be on it's last legs. A review of the publisher's website shows that they only sell 55,000 copies a week, to an audience with an average age of 54.3 and an income of 35K, which obviously does not make them competitive in advertising market.  Especially when one considers that even Ohio Cooperative Living sells 6x's as many copies per week. But, today's news that their parent company A360media sold the National Enquirer and The Star, which they've been trying to sell for years, leaves them with Us, Closer,and Life & Style (each which sells 3x's more copies per week), and SOD.  Which makes me wonder if SOD's finale may happen this year? Also, what's up with the cooperative community in Ohio that is so fascinating? Please register in order to view this content
    • One of my guys on my Team thinks that P&G directed him to write those crime dramas specifically to mimic what GH was doing. He also said the first was good & then they were ... I believe his exact word was  godawful. For some reason I cannot remember them! D'oh. How long till Catlin & Sally? Or is it Jake & the Loves next? As you can see, I am turned around. I believe all of this is on her Emmy reel that she won with.  Please register in order to view this content On 2-5-1991 Vicky was on the stand impersonating Marley. Cass did not know he was questioning Vicky. Marley had lied to Vicky & told her no rape occurred. Marley had been truthful with Cass that Jake had raped her. Marley admitted in court that Jake had raped her. Afterward, in her anger, Vicky destroyed the first women's restroom she came to. Thanks to Another World Memories on #SoapTwitter!
    • Tom King did a relatively good job writing for Lemay's existing characters.  But King's new characters were terribly ill conceived, and his writing for them was awful.  Had King been smart, he would not have written-off so may of Lemay's characters.  King eventually dedicated at least one fourth of the cast to badly written crime drama, which did not fit the style of Another World.  All soaps occasionally do crime plots, but King over-did it, plus the plots were not compelling.  And for some reason, the next two or three head-writers continued with the bad crime stuff.  
    • Oh, how I laughed at that.   You're not. Some people have been saying the same. And Twitter definitely has been arguing that very point along with the potential return of Mary to SLC given she skipped the second season reunion. It sets a standard and people are going to wonder...especially the housewives themselves.   Perhaps he will ask on that one on one. Please register in order to view this content
