FOREWORD REVIEWS has never strayed from its mission to help booksellers and librarians discover great books from indie presses. At a time when the trade media devoted nearly all its attention to the larger corporate publishers like Random House and Simon & Schuster, the debut of Foreword Reviews introduced a new stream of quality reviews of independently published books to the wholesalers and distributors where booksellers and librarians order their books. Foreword Reviews is dedicated to the “art” of book reviewing. With a review team of talented writers who are experts in their fields, their book-industry journal is designed for a discerning readership—in recognition of the fact that quality paper, generous use of white space, and creative design encourage a time investment by readers.
