BAM Retail Store Title Submissions
Want to submit a title for placement in our Books-A-Million retail stores?

American Wholesale Book Company is the direct distributor for Books-A-Million retail stores. Our Buyers review thousands of books each year for placement in our stores. They work closely with publishers and distributors to review all new titles and backlists. Reviewing galleys and marketing materials, along with publisher presentations, allows them to select the books our customers are looking for.
