As 2014 draws to a close there are lots of lists floating around. The best album, the best song, the best restaurant, the best photo, the best moments…and here at 33 1/3 we had a wonderful year of bests.
We saw the publication of FOURTEEN 33 1/3 volumes! #89 Andrew W.K.’s I Get Wet through #103 Hole’s Live Through This.
We celebrated our 10th anniversary with our 100th volume!
We released a complete set of all 100 books on our site for only $1,000!!!!!
We held an open call for proposals and received 410 submissions! From those 410, we announced FOURTEEN new titles to be published in 2015 and beyond!
We got a nice write up in the LA TIMES by Amy Benfer.
Stephen Burt read every book in the series so far and wrote about it on Slate. There’s also a listicle!
We wish to extend a massive thank you to our readers. Thank you for continuing to buy our books so we can keep publishing them. Lots of love to you and yours for the holidays and the New Year.
