Welcome to the IBG

The IBG is an exclusive initiative, supporting independent bookshops with enhanced discounts on key new titles every month, and a range of other exclusive promotions and offers. Membership is open to all independent booksellers, UK and international, and it is free to join.

As a member, each month you will have the opportunity to buy 50 key new titles (30 adult and 20 children’s) at up to 57.5% discount. Details of the titles and discounts are sent out on a monthly email to members, and the discounts are available for an extended period, allowing you to re-order as necessary, and benefit from high discounts throughout the key sales period for each title.

The titles are voted for by the IBG membership from a longlist compiled by the Bertrams buying team, via an online membership survey which determines the final selection.

IBG members also benefit from enhanced terms on key promotions throughout the year, including Books for Christmas and Summer Reading, and bespoke offers are also available to members communicated through our regular e-newsletter.

The only conditions of membership are that you place an order from the monthly new title list by the advertised deadline, and that membership applies for a minimum of 6 months.
