LibraryBub’s 2017 Featured Books from Independent Publishers

By LibraryBub, Special for  USDR

Today LibraryBub reveals its titles of the month for July 2017 as part of its program of introducing librarians to outstanding books from independent publishers. Included among the recommended titles are many that have won awards and several that are bestselling books within their genre. Each of the books is stocked by Amazon and has been specially chosen by LibraryBub as deserving of particular  attention.

LibraryBub CEO, Alinka Rutkowska, is excited to be able to facilitate the connection between independent publishers and the library sector. “Books change lives,” she affirms, “and they are our world’s biggest treasures. Librarians are the gatekeepers who decide which books will get in the hands of their  patrons.”

LibraryBub author Rosemary A. Johns says, “After LibraryBub’s mailing, over a thousand librarians clicked through to my book. I’m a British fantasy author and so have no way to connect to American libraries. Alinka’s service was exactly what I needed. I spent my teenage years avidly borrowing books from libraries or curled up in the corner of one; being able to share my books in libraries (as well as bookstores and online) is something I’m passionate about. This service made that possible in a big  way.”

LibraryBub warmly invites librarians to register at to participate in this exclusive networking scheme. Independent publishers are encouraged to go to to submit recent publications for  consideration.
