The article reports on the increase in the title production of Simon&Schuster Audio from 73 in 2005 to 95 in 2006. The increase was attributed to its first publication of children's audiobooks and the release of ten Ernest Hemingway titles after acquiring the rights. The company has a backlist of about 1,000 to 1,500 titles which accounts for about 60% of sales. Its top seller in 2005 includes the "1776," by David McCullough and "Team of Rivals," by Doris Kearns Goodwin.
