Welcome to the IBG

The IBG is an exclusive initiative, supporting independent bookshops with enhanced discounts on key new titles every month and many other offers and promotional support for members. It was established as a buying group more than 6 years ago, and has developed into a wide-ranging initiative for independent booksellers in partnership with Bertrams. It is open to all independent booksellers, and membership is free.

As a member, each month you will have the opportunity to buy 50 key new titles at enhanced discounts. You will receive an email informing you of the IBG monthly title selection & details, and the discounts run for an extended period, allowing you to re-order as necessary and benefit from the high discounts available. The titles are selected by an online membership survey, enabling you to decide which titles are promoted.

Other benefits of membership include a monthly e-newsletter, free full colour posters for in-store display and access to a range of exclusive promotions put together by Bertrams with independent booksellers in mind.
