Indie Next List & Kids' Next List

Each month in the Red Box mailing, all participating stores receive a quantity of the printed Indie Next List flyers 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 twenty titles receiving the most nominations designated as “Indie Next List Great Reads” and presented with jacket image and a bookseller quote.

An additional twelve titles are selected for the flyer to be featured as “Now in Paperback.” These are titles that had been featured as Great Reads as hardcovers and continue to be handselling favorites in bookstores. A PDF with jacket image and bookseller quote as well as a shelftalker for each “Now in Paperback” title is available for download here.

Each quarter in the Kids’ White Box mailing, stores receive a quantity of the Kids’ Next List flyers, which is also printed in four-color, but presented in a four-page tabloid format. The “Top Ten” titles appear on the front page with jacket images, and other titles are grouped by age range (ages 4-8, ages 8-12, and teen) for ease in selection by both booksellers and consumers.

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 20 new “Great Reads” titles and 12 “Now in Paperback” titles.The Kids’ quarterly list of 52 titles is divided into two e-newsletter volumes based on on-sale dates and going out roughly six weeks apart on the second, third, or fourth Thursday of the month.

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.
