Book Info Pages Are Growing
Check out all of the new stuff on IndieBound.org's book info pages!
Alternative Weekly Reviews
Book reviews from 131 independent, alternative newspapers across North America—all members of the Association of Alternative Newsweeklies (AAN)—are now featured on IndieBound.org's book info pages. The AAN covers every major metropolitan area and smaller cities and towns, plus its web presence on AltWeeklies.com. These newsweeklies focus on local news, culture, and arts, and their book reviews highlight local authors, events at indie bookstores, and books on community topics, in addition to new titles and great reads. See Love is a Four-Letter Word, with a review from Durham, North Carolina’s Independent Weekly.
Now on book info pages you can also find videos: book trailers, author interviews, skits and more. See All in a Day by Cynthia Rylant and Nikki McClure for an example, for a video interview with illustrator McClure.
Browse Sample Pages
Another treat from publishers on IndieBound.org is the ability to browse inside books. Over 10,000 titles now feature links to browse sample pages directly under the book cover image. See Haruki Murakami’s After Dark for an example.
Find out who else is wishing for books on IndieBound.org. Just under the Find Bookstores button, you’ll see a new feature: “This book is on these lists,” showing which users are wishing for which books. Explore your fellow readers’ lists, find books in common and pick up some new reading ideas. See The Magicians by Lev Grossman, a much-wished for book, for an example.
