Indie Next List & Kids' Next List

All participating stores receive a quantity of the printed Indie Next List fliers printed in four-color. Booksellers provide recommendations for books they have enjoyed reading and look forward to handselling in their stores.These recommendations are collected and tabulated, with the 25 titles receiving the most nominations designated as “Indie Next List Great Reads” and presented with jacket image and a bookseller quote.

An additional 6 titles are selected for the flier to be featured as “Now in Paperback.” These are titles that had been featured as Great Reads as hardcovers and continue to be hand-selling favorites in bookstores. A PDF with jacket image and bookseller quote as well as a shelf-talker for each “Now in Paperback” title is available for download here.

Stores also receive a quantity of the bi-monthly Kids’ Next List fliers, which is also printed in four-color, and feature a #1 overall title and ten books in each of the following age categories: Picture Books, Middle Grade, and Young Adult.

Both the adult Indie Next List and the Kids’ Next List are distributed electronically as store-branded e-newsletters with the book “buy” buttons linking back to the stores’ websites. The adult Indie Next List goes out on the first Thursday of each month with its full list of 25 new “Great Reads” titles and 6 “Now in Paperback” titles. The Kids’ bi-monthly list of 31 titles goes out the third Thursday of the first month for each issue (ie the January/February issue goes out the third Thursday of January).

Once a book is chosen for an Indie Next List, the publisher will be asked to consider providing funds to support the printing and distribution of the flyers.
