American‌ ‌Book‌ ‌Company‌ ‌- Who‌ ‌We‌ ‌Are‌ ‌

As the largest wholesale distributor of remainder and bargain-priced books, American Book Company provides well-known book titles at up to 90% off of retail price. Our extensive collection of remainder, promotional, and bargain-priced books is restocked each week so that we can provide our customers with the latest bestsellers. 

Founded in 1977 by our CEO and Chairman, Dean Winegardner, American Book Company strives to maintain strong relationships with publishers and retailers so that we can remain an industry leader in the bargain book wholesale business. Our 900,000 sq. ft. Distribution Center located in Johnson City, Tennessee houses our supply of over 12,000 wholesale books. We source our titles from prominent publishers such as Penguin Random House, Harper Collins, Simon & Schuster, and more. Our inventory includes genres of all kinds, from children’s books and young adult novels to adult fiction and mass market paperback titles. 

Along with our books, we offer additional services including packaging displays and pricing technology. We also have the industry knowledge to help you achieve the promotional display you’re looking for. We offer Floor Stands, Full Pallet Treasure Bins, and more, as well as graphic options to meet your merchandising needs. Our team is also equipped to label your books with a retail price or create a custom UPC code so that you can stay organized. 

American Book Company currently supplies books to a wide customer base including individual bookstores, supermarkets, school book fairs, university bookstores, wholesale clubs, and stationary stores, to name a few. Our newly launched ERP system allows us to catalog, pack, and ship all of our books so that we’re well-equipped to handle large order volumes efficiently. We also partner with our sister freight brokerage, American Distribution Services, so whether you need drop shipments or full trailer loads, we can handle it. 

At American Book Company, we aim to provide our customers with the highest quality discount wholesale books and the best customer service. Our Customer Portal service makes it easy for you to keep track of your book lists, previous purchases, and manage invoices.
