This week, the Washington Post will begin publishing the American Booksellers Association’s weekly adult National Indie Bestseller List on the Washington Post website and in the “Outlook” section of the Sunday printed edition of the newspaper. The Post will alternate weekly between the Indie Bestseller hardcover list and the paperback list.
“ABA is pleased to be working with the Washington Post to provide the Indie Bestseller List to its readers,” said ABA Chief Operating Officer Joy Dallanegra-Sanger. “The Washington Post is one of the most respected and widely read national news outlets, and as part of their books coverage the Indie Bestseller List will showcase to readers and the publishing industry the importance and relevance of independent bookstores, which is a central goal of ABA’s ends policies.”
The first list will appear online today, December 4, and in the December 8 print issue.
Questions about syndication of the Indie Bestseller List should be directed to ABA Senior Strategy Officer Dan Cullen.
