Update as of July 15, 2020: In lieu of printing a Summer 2020 bookstore catalog, IBPA made a donation to the Book Industry Charitable Foundation (BINC), to help support booksellers during this unprecedented time. 

The IBPA Bookstore Catalog will be back with a combined Fall/Winter 2020 issue, delivered in early November 2020 to 3,500 bookstores that will combine sharing your title information with additional financial support.

Reservations are now open for the IBPA “Indie Titles for Your Consideration” Fall/Winter 2020 Bookstore Catalog which will:

  • Provide a $40 per page donation to BINC, at no additional cost to participating publishers.
  • Give a complimentary "second chance" to every book that was included in the Spring 2020 IBPA bookstore catalog, which landed in the early weeks of the pandemic. A special section in the back of the Fall/Winter 2020 catalog will include every book cover from the Spring 2020 catalog with a url directing booksellers to explore more online.
  • Generate more excitement for the books within the catalog by featuring seven titles on the cover at no additional charge to the participating publishers. The titles to be featured will be chosen by the IBPA staff to highlight the quality and variety of books inside.

Introduce your book(s) to 3,500 chain and independent bookstore buyers using IBPA's Bookstore Catalog!

Be sure to sign in for the discounted IBPA member price of $849 each.
