Seagull Book[edit]

Even though Deseret Book purchased Seagull Book, they are still run differently. They have different prices, different merchandise, and even different programs for customers. They are still too different to be put together I think. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 67.182.219.241 (talkcontribs) 23:31, 3 December 2007

Covenant Communications[edit]

Why does Covenant Communications redirect here? At least a Covenant Communications page should reflect the company's history, much like the page for Bookcraft, which was purchased by Deseret Book prior to the purchase of Covenant. Kent Larsen (talk) 01:32, 18 January 2010 (UTC)

I agree that they should have their own page, but nobody has bothered to write it, myself included. As the principle author of the Bookcraft article, I can say that it takes a fair amount of work to find all that source material, and I chose to write on Bookcraft because it was a more important LDS publisher (in its time). Current priorities may prevent me from doing the same for Covenant.
The redirect is probably because DB is the parent publisher and CC is briefly mentioned in the article: Deseret Book#Seagull Book and Covenant Communications. Much more should be said though. ——Rich jj (talk) 21:24, 27 January 2010 (UTC)
