American Book Company is the largest wholesale distributor of remainder, promotional and bargain-priced books.
Our company was founded in 1997 by Dean Winegardner, who continues to serve as our CEO & Chairman. After operating a chain of 100+ bookstores for several years, Dean set out to form a wholesale Bargain Book business that had a steady and robust supply forged by strong relationships with the world’s top publishers. Being a retailer, he also knew what value-added services his customers yearned for and hired the most talented group of successful women and men assembled in the industry to innovate, serve & achieve new standards.
ABC offers high-quality titles, including many former bestsellers, at prices up to 90% off Publisher’s Retail. Each week, our inventory is added to and replenished by the hundreds, so our customers always have access to bestselling books from the world’s top authors.
