Shelf Awareness for Readers: Bookstore edition

Booksellers: You can get a FREE customized version of Shelf Awareness for Readers for your customers!

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.

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 version looks like:

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

We’re able to offer this service 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.
