This week, bookstores that participated in the American Booksellers Association’s ABACUS-17 survey received an e-mail with information about how to access a report analyzing their 2017 financial results.
The e-mail came on Monday, November 12, from Michael Becher of Industry Insights, the company assisting ABA in compiling and creating ABACUS, with the subject line “ABACUS-17 – results.”
If a participating store has not received its ABACUS report, it should contact Becher at (614) 389-2100, ext. 114, or email@example.com. (Before contacting Becher, booksellers are encouraged to check both their spam filter and with key staff members to see if they may have received it.)
Booksellers who have questions about ABACUS are invited to contact Becher or ABA’s Dan Cullen at firstname.lastname@example.org or (800) 637-0037, ext. 7560.
