Rep Picks List

Rep Picks List

The Rep Picks session at the SIBA Discovery Show is one of the most fast-paced and most fun parts of the program. This year it also had the distinction of being the only session where someone announced his intention to add his name to the GOP hopefuls for the next Presidential ticket -- we're all rooting for you, Mike!

Microphones were thrown. Microphones were snatched out of peoples' hands. And in the standing-room only audience booksellers scribbled frantically in their programs as title after title was waved in front of their noses in rapid succession.

If you missed the session, or missed some of the books presented, then here is a list you can download of all the books your sales reps were taking about.These are your future bestsellers. Or, as one bookseller put it -- "I always make note of the rep picks books, these guys aren't going to steer me wrong!"

B3! Rollover

B3! Rollover

B3!We've had a great response to the SIBA B3! (Building Better Booksellers) Engagement program. Over the summer, especially, we've seen a sharp increase in stores participating -- uploading photos, using SIBA hashtags, opening their email (yes, this email counts!) and in general helping SIBA to help them become more visible and more engaged.

Here's what's new for 2016

1) the B3 Year will now run from Discover Show to Discovery Show. That way, all the points you accumulate in the fall can count towards the next year's show.

2) For this year only -- all the points from 2015 will rollover to 2016. So those of you who who have just gotten started earning points will keep what you've earned over the summer

3) Okra Pick displays will now earn 50 points when you post the photo of your display and send us your sales figures.

Have you planned your SIBA Book Award Display?

Posted By Southern Independent Booksellers Alliance, Tuesday, July 28, 2015

At the SIBA Trade Show this year, we host a $1000 Display Contest:  Create a table top display for one, more, or all of the SIBA Book Award Winners and recreate it on site at the SIBA trade show.  Industry peers will vote for their favorites, and the winning display will receive $1000.  This display contest is open to SIBA’s Core Members only.  So display the books, get familiar and get your creative juices going!

If you are attending the show, then you should make an effort to participate. You get a table on the show floor, you get authors, publishers, sales reps and vendors oohing and ahhing over your creativity and talent. You get $1000, CASH, if you win the contest.
