For the second year in a row, booksellers are invited to submit their title nominations for the American Booksellers Association’s Indie Next List Holiday Gift Guide flier, featuring the top adult and children’s gift books of 2018 across a range of categories, as recommended by indie booksellers.
The standard Indie Next List nomination form can be used to nominate booksellers’ favorite frontlist gift books in the following categories:
- Photography/art books
- Visual travel books
- Novelty books
- Stocking stuffers
- Other gift books
The double-sided, four-color flier, which will be distributed to stores in the November Red Box, is branded with the Indie Next List logo, and each featured gift book title will be accompanied by cover art and a quote from one of the nominating booksellers recommending the book.
Nominations for the second Indie Next List Holiday Gift Guide flier will be accepted through September 30. Booksellers are asked to use the usual methods to nominate their chosen titles: Edelweiss, NetGalley, and the standard Indie Next List nomination form. Publishers are also invited to collect and forward bookseller nominations.
Questions about the flier can be directed to ABA Program and Development Coordinator Jessica Stauffer.
