Shelf Awareness: enlightenment for readers


The Shelf Awareness newsletters help you keep in touch with your bookstore customers. It's easy to get started and, with the help of publisher advertisement, it’s FREE to you and your customers.

The Pre-Order e-blast sends to your customers on the last Wednesday of the month and highlights upcoming titles that are available for pre-order. You can use the titles we've picked each month or replace them with your own selections.

The newsletter is branded with your logo, it links to your store website, replies to your email address, and includes buy buttons that can send readers to each book on your e-commerce site.

The Shelf Awareness for Readers e-newsletter sends every Friday, plus plus five special issues featuring gift idea and best-of-the-year titles during the holiday season. Each issue has positive book reviews, plus author interviews, bookish trivia and other features. Like our Pre-Order e-blast, this newsletter is branded for your bookstore, includes your social media links, replies to your email address and features buy buttons that link to your site.

It’s totally hands-off if you like. We can take care of everything for you. If you want more customization though, you can add an introduction message or add your own Staff Recommendations titles whenever you like!
