Who We Are

At ReaderLink, our mission is to delight readers all around the world with the best works from leading authors and publishers. Established in 2011, ReaderLink has acquired multiple distributors in the past decade to become the largest full-service book distributor in North America. ReaderLink reaches 99% of the U.S. population every week and sells one-third of all printed trade books.

In today’s market, we know that people buy books beyond the traditional bookstore. ReaderLink services all kinds of retailers, curating the perfect collection of books to resonate with a variety of shoppers. From chain retailers to specialty stores, we get books into the hands of readers around the world. To enable this global reach, ReaderLink has retail partners in the United Kingdom, Japan, Australia, as well as in U.S. military installations.

Book shelves

ReaderLink has six U.S. distribution centers and supplies over 100,000 stores. In two days or less, our shipments can reach anywhere in the United States. When we combine our facilities with our ability to forecast store distributions, bookshelves never go empty. ReaderLink assists partners by designing a fully customized book program to ensure sale opportunities never pass by.

ReaderLink’s passion for reading is exemplified by the ReaderLink Cares initiative. We have donated over $8 million in books to help foster the love of reading in local communities. ReaderLink has also raised and donated millions of dollars to support reading and literacy.

Now more than ever, we must continue to empower the future generation of readers. It is our job to provide content to customers – whether it means supplying books by a new favorite author or stocking grocery store checkouts with popular bestsellers, ReaderLink does it all.
