The Summer 2010 Kids' Indie Next List can now be seen in preview online. The four-page, full-color flier will be arriving at indie bookstores in the upcoming Children's White Box.
The list features the top 10 titles for the summer publishing season and an additional 49 selections, spanning all age groups. The Kids' Indie Next List is compiled based on nominations from independent booksellers nationwide. All titles include a bookseller quote and full bibliographic information. The flier is also replete with jacket illustrations.
The Summer Kids' Next List will be featured on IndieBound.org in a user-friendly, interactive format that gives consumers access to all of the discerning bookseller recommendations and lets them purchase online from their favorite indie bookseller. The list will also be available through the IndieBound iPhone app, which lets users browse Next List selections; search for new titles; find local, indie bookstores (and other indie businesses); buy books online from indie booksellers; and more.
Looking ahead, Friday, June 4, is the deadline for August 2010 Indie Next List nominations. The deadline for the September 2010 Indie Next List is July 2, and nominations for the Autumn 2010 Kids' Indie Next List are due by July 9.
