Vinyl Records Are Back in an Exciting Way
In our digital times, a resounding interest has developed for the analog warmth of music played on vinyl records. We're currently stocking more than 2,200 unique vinyl titles designed to appeal to hobbyists and serious collectors alike.

Because of the fragility of the records, we've designed a special way of packing vinyl shipments to prevent breakage.


We work with hundreds of vendors including major studios and independent studios and distributors to supply you with the big hits and the hard-to-find titles that are often unavailable through other wholesalers. We cover all the genres shown on big screens and little screens, and we offer the most comprehensive Blu-ray assortment in the industry.

Because so many hit films are adapted from books, cross-merchandising the movies with the books you may already sell offers a solid incremental sales opportunity.

Plus, we make it really easy for you to access and promote titles not usually found in mass-market stores, from brands such as:

  • A&E
  • BBC
  • Docurama
  • PBS
  • The Criterion Collection
  • Sundance
  • National Geographic

Do you want to offer your customers eBooks? We make it easy for independent bookstores to be in the digital book business by offering an ecommerce solution called My Books and More.

We carry eBooks in three formats—ePub, PDF, and our proprietary Blio format—to allow you to reach all of your eReading customers. Most of our titles are available in all three formats. eBooks in ePub and PDF formats follow industry standards, making them accessible to nearly every reading device or app available on the market today and that also accepts Adobe digital rights management (DRM) protection. Our own Blio format requires the download of our free Blio app (available for iOS, Android, and PC). Blio excels at bringing four-color books to life, especially cookbooks, children's books, and craft and hobby titles.
