Backlist for Bird-Lovers!

By Candice Chaplin | February 10 2021 | NonfictionMerchandise

Spring is one of the best times of year for bird-watching, with birds migrating in large groups. Two major new bird books go on sale at the end of March, THE BEDSIDE BOOK OF BIRDS and A MOST REMARKABLE CREATURE. These are two of the best reasons to take a look at the bird sections at your accounts.

In addition to birds and binoculars, bird-lovers love books, especially bird-watching guides. This collection, aimed at backyard birders and avian adventurers, includes all the top-selling guides as well as gift books, narrative non-fiction, humor, and stationery. A perfect starting point for a librarian or bookseller trying to build a solid birding section or promotion.
