Hi there, reader friend!
TBR turned 3 last month, and it’s hard to believe how much we’ve grown since the very first round of recommendations was packed and shipped out of our executive director’s dining room. So far, we’ve recommended over 50,000 reads to book lovers like you, and one thing we’ve learned is that all these books take up a lot of space!
As TBR has grown, we’ve realized that it needs its own home, so effective August 30th, we are bringing the fulfillment operation in-house at Book Riot. Our partners at Print: A Bookstore have done an incredible job these last three years, and we couldn’t be more grateful for all the ways they’ve worked magic for TBR, especially through the myriad challenges of the pandemic. If you’re ever in Portland, Maine (or if you’re looking for a great indie to support online), pay them a visit and check out their fantastic staff picks.
This change shouldn’t impact your experience as a TBR customer—we’ve been working behinds the scenes for several months to make it a smooth transition, and we are grateful for your patience with any hiccups along the way—but we wanted to let you know why you won’t see Print’s name and branding on TBR materials anymore.
As we look to the next three years (and hopefully many more) for TBR, having fulfillment under our own roof will allow us to explore new additions to the service and continue expanding the ways we help passionate book nerds find their next great read. It’s an exciting time, and we’re so glad you’re here for it.
