SIBA Wraps up a Great Year!

At the 2013 SIBA Trade Show, over 150 authors contributed to a SIBA effort to thank her core indie bookstores.  Each member bookstore received this week a limited edition, original, roll of wrapping paper that features the authors’ signature.  A limited number of additional rolls are still available.  Priced for the public at $24.99 per roll, each roll wraps six books and will add a unique feature to your gift-giving.  It is SIBA’s hope to be able to provide a unique line of wrapping paper available only through and for southern indie bookstore members going forward but a demand must be established in order to get the price down.  So if you’d like a unique one-of-a-kind look for your book gift-giving, email This email address is being protected from spambots.
