Shelf Awareness for Readers Bookstore Edition

The bookstore edition has all of the content from Shelf Awareness for Readers that you know and love, plus some great additional features:

  • Prominent placement of your bookstore's logo
  • Links to your website
  • Links to your social media accounts (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram & Pinterest)
  • Replies to your email address
  • Buy buttons for every reviewed book link directly to your e-commerce page for that specific title
  • Events listings (if you have an RSS, XML or ICS feed)
  • Customizable lead editorial at the top of the newsletter
  • Ad space to announce sales, events, etc.

Set up is easy! We just need a few items from you and then we take care of building the customized version. Submit your materials here or contact with questions

The response we've had from our bookstore partners has been fantastic! Stores have reported an uptick in e-commerce sales and that their customers have been asking for (and buying!) books they saw in THEIR newsletter. We’ll make sure to let you know ahead of time which titles will be reviewed in each issue, so that you can decide if you want to bring extra copies in to your store. Some stores have set up displays to highlight the titles featured in that week's newsletters.

Here are some examples of what the bookstore versions look like:

Village Books - Bellingham, WA
Tattered Cover - Denver, CO
Elliott Bay Books - Seattle, WA
Blue Willow Bookshop - Houston, TX

Shelf Awareness Pre-Order e-blast

Like the Shelf Awareness for Readers BookstoreEdition, the monthly Pre-Order e-blast is branded for your bookstore, includes your social media links, replies to your email address and features buy buttons that link to your e-commerce site.

This e-blast sends to your customers on the last Wednesday of the month and highlights eight upcoming titles, plus three featured titles that are available for pre-order. You can use the eight titles we've picked each month or replace them entirely with your own selections. You’ll be able to switch title location, replace titles, change cover image, change the URL the title will link to.

It’s easy to sign up. Visit the registration page here or write with questions.

Here are a few examples of some of our Partner Stores' Pre-Order newsletters:

Fountain Bookstore - Richmond, VA
Books & Books - Florida

We’re able to offer thes newsletters and services for free to bookstores and subscribers because of the support of advertising from publishing houses. Our promise to you is that these ads will NEVER link directly to a competitor’s retail site.
