CRoB For Bookstores
A Free Service for Bookstores

The Christian Review of Books is a group dedicated to examining all kinds of writing from a Christian perspective.  We have, of course, a strong emphasis on books published for the Christian market along with other books important to Christian life. 

We feel that bookstores are an important part of bringing these reviews to the public.  Bookstores are trusted members of the Christian community and as such are relied upon to give direction to their patron readers.  The Review is dedicated to helping make it easier for bookstores to make suggestions and advise their customers. 

The Review is also designed to help bookstores as a business.  Here are some of the things the CRoB is designed to do to help stores:

  • Provide recommendations to readers about potential purchases.

  • Give stores a chance to sponsor the Review and advertise within it.

  • Develop a customer mailing list

  • Provide a place online where book buyers can find your store.

We do this by first soliciting reviews from reputable Christian Sources.  We then select several reviews to be sent out to bookstores.  These are sent by email as a printable PDF which the stores can print and distribute as they see fit.  Along with the Review we also send a customer signup sheet we ask stores to make available to their customers who want to receive the Review directly.  We ask stores to fax or mail these sheets back to us as they are filled.  Participating stores are also listed on the "Find a bookstore" (coming soon) of the Online CRoB.

Bookstores wishing to sponsor the Review for an annual fee of $25 will receive reviews with a "sponsored by" line prominently appearing in the front page along with the stores address, phone number and other pertinent information.  Stores who sponsor the Review are also eligible to purchase inexpensive ad space (just $5 per month) on the cover of the Review.  Review sponsors also have the opportunity to have monthly specials emailed to customers who signed up for the Review at their stores at no charge. 

Also available to either sponsors or non sponsors are 25 preprinted copies which we will mail to stores for a small $5 monthly fee (+$1.50 for every additional 10 copies).  This is a great, inexpensive option for store owners and managers who do not have the time or equipment to print copies of the Review.
