There are over 70,000 titles, including books on the Indie Next List - books that might not have made any bestseller lists (yet) but deserve to be discovered - and staff picks from top independent bookstores, recommended titles for genres from current events to horror to fiction award winners to young adult, and playlists of and for featured authors. The prices and subscription benefits are excellent, and there's nothing like knowing you're getting the best of the best from a company that values independents just like you do.
