As we finish the final weeks of 2018, the American Booksellers Association urges all stores to report to the Indie Bestseller Lists during this busiest of seasons to demonstrate the power of independents.
By reporting sales each week, booksellers help show the media and consumers the vitality of indie bookstores while also contributing to the influence of our channel and improvements to bookseller/publisher relations.
Reporting booksellers also keep the Indie Bestseller Lists filled with the wonderful discoveries found in indie stores and guarantee their receipt of a more robust Monthly Box mailing of publisher-sponsored ARCs and galleys.
Watch next week’s issue of Bookselling This Week for the 2018 year-end Indie Bestseller Lists. Each list is a great resource for shoppers looking for post-holiday reads.
