Indie Next List Great Reads -- Now in E-books

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

E-book sales are rising rapidly, revolutionizing the publishing industry, and creating new opportunities for independent bookstores. Stores with ABA IndieCommerce sites are now fully equipped to sell more than 220,000 titles on their websites -- the key is getting the message out there. To help, a special collection of 20 popular Indie Next List titles available as e-books has been assembled on

The initial list includes such customer favorites as Three Cups of Tea, The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao, and The White Tiger. The list will be updated periodically to keep it fresh.

Customers can click through the purchase button and enter their zip code to buy the e-books through an IndieCommerce website that has migrated to the Drupal platform. Once there, they can select their preferred format, purchase, and download the e-book immediately.

The list will soon be available as a block for use by IndieCommerce users on their own websites as well, and it will be featured in the next version of the IndieBound iPhone app. --Matt Supko
