“We’ve seen very, very impressive growth, with significant sales increases in certain titles featured on the Indie Next List. The unsubscribe rate is virtually nonexistent. Those consumers are hearing about titles that indie booksellers are recommending, and it is having a clear impact on sales”–Oren Teicher, ABA CEO

“A customer came in yesterday and pointed to her smart phone which had a specific book from the Shelf Awareness email catalog pulled up. She bought the book as a Christmas gift for her nephew & then found another book from the shelves. Success!!
Thanks to everyone at Shelf Awareness for the new idea and sharing it with our customers. We look forward to the subsequent emailed catalogs & similar success.”– Peter Schertz, Owner Maria’s Bookshop, Durango, Colorado
