As 2020 Comes to a Close, Remember to Report Sales [4]

As we finish the final weeks of 2020, the American Booksellers Association urges all stores to report to the Indie Bestseller Lists during this busiest of seasons to demonstrate the power of independents.

[5]Why is bestseller reporting important? Watch this video to find out [5].

By reporting sales each week, booksellers help show the media and consumers the vitality of indie bookstores while also contributing to the influence of our channel and improvements to bookseller/publisher relations.

Reporting booksellers also keep the Indie Bestseller Lists filled with the wonderful discoveries found in indie stores and guarantee their receipt of a more robust ABA Box mailing [6] of publisher-sponsored ARCs and galleys.

Visit the reporting site on BookWeb.org now [7]. Booksellers can email info@bookweb.org [8] for assistance.

Check out this week’s issue of Bookselling This Week for the 2020 year-end Indie Bestseller Lists [9]. Each list is a great resource for shoppers looking for gifts or holiday reads.
