Adult Indie Next List

The Indie Next List, a monthly list drawn from bookseller-recommended favorite handsells, epitomizes the heart and soul of passionate bookselling. Independent booksellers are and have always been discoverers of the next big thing, the next great read, the next bestseller, and the next undiscovered gem.

Kids Indie Next List

The Kid's Indie Next List titles are based on recommendations from booksellers at independent bookstores across the country on a quarterly basis.

Indies Introduce List

This list does what indies do best—finds and showcases undiscovered authors and compelling books. Two panels of booksellers chose the Indies Introduce titles—10 adult and 10 children’s—as the best of the season debuts.

Indie Choice Award Winners

The Indies Choice Book Awards reflect the spirit of independent bookstores nationwide and the IndieBound movement. Book of the Year winners and Honor Award recipients are all titles nominated by ABA member booksellers to the Indie Next Lists.
