Before We Get To Itty Bitty Books.
If you are a night-time before bed reader of books, then you have had to endure being physically assaulted by the very thing of your entertainment. There is the other side of books too. Many of us have the inclination of carrying a physical book with us for the down times, but the experience is akin to having a tire in your front pocket.
Well book serve two purposes, and hose are for education and entertainment, oh yeah, and leveling the old couch in a dorm room, or basement. Aside from the obvious there is a phenomenon with reading currently. Many people are foregoing the hard and soft cover books for eBooks and other digital media. Even with the rise of digital media to help our immediate gratification and easy of use society, we often find ourselves searching for the entertaining passages, or the particular notes and information we need. Digital media in convenient but lacks a tactile feel and experience I have come to expect with physical bound literature.
As a reader of sorts myself, I am quickly finding myself moving back to the hard, paperback and soft cover book form because of the experience an actual physical book brings to the table. There is nothing like a good BOOK! Over the last decade and a half we have seen the dwindling of book store large and small, but the appetite for information, historically is at an all time high. With services such as Amazon providing Kindle, iTunes and Audible. The hunger for information and entertainment has not subsided. The landscape of choice has changed.
Even little ole me, as a self published author inspired to write because of a particular physical type of book. I look for easy to read, well written for understanding, with easily to locate important part. Small books which can fit in any back pocket inspired me.
The days of Unabridged dictionary sized literature covering a topic from the creation to modern society are not what most readers are looking to grasp concerning information or fiction. The need for direct concise information has come to the forefront.

SUZY PRUDDEN co-founder of Itty Bitty™ Books made her stage debut in a dance recital at the age of two as the lead elephant in a long line of two-year olds in a rendition of “The Circus.” It was love at first performance. Suzy never again saw a stage she didn’t want to be on – preferably in the center.
At 22, with her husband in school and a toddler at home – following her mother Bonnie Prudden’s sage advice to “keep ‘em busy” – she founded Suzy Prudden Studios – the first, largest and most successful toddler exercise school in New York City. That school, which branched out into gymnastics and women’s exercise, took her to 13 books, twenty national tours, The Today Show, Good Morning America and Ophra, along with hundreds of magazines and newspapers and total burn out.
To ease the burn out she started studying metaphysics and hypnosis which led her to opening and building the largest Hypnosis Center Specializing in Weight Loss in Los Angeles. It was during these years she discovered that she was a truly great salesperson.
As a successful entrepreneur, and author of a dozen books, she next started coaching her business hypnosis clients in how to grow their companies. On the way, she and her sister Joan Meijer-Hirschland wrote “The Itty Bitty™ Weight Loss Book” and discovered a unique blend of publishing and business opportunity.
Together they founded the Itty Bitty™ Publishing Community which publishes Itty Bitty™ Books – 15 Simple Informative Steps By Experts In Fields Of All Kinds. Prudden hangs out with experts of all kinds and within days of announcing the founding of the company began signing authors.
