About

Hello booksellers! Welcome to Bluestone Bookshop.

What we do: we’re a place where independent booksellers can find cool marketing content to share with their customers. All of our content is digital, which means you can use it on your websites, in your e-newsletters, on blogs, Tumblr, Twitter, Facebook, and wherever else you are digitally hanging out.

What else we do: we talk about books we love, and try to provide intelligent distraction from our weekly schedule of meetings.

We were created by Ruth Liebmann (@yrstrulyREL) and Liz Lesnick (@randomhouse) at Random House, Inc. We are staffed by various colleagues who share our love for good books, and who like working with (and shopping in) independent bookstores. We can be reached at bluestone@randomhouse.com

We named this place Bluestone Bookshop because the name forces us to think: would a real independent bookstore want to do this? If the answer is no, we move on. If the answer is yes, we try to find a way to make it as easy as possible for booksellers to grab digital marketing content.

Although we are imaginary, our bookstore experience is real. Ruth Liebmann worked for eight years in a NYC independent bookstore. Liz has always dreamed of working in a bookstore and can’t walk by a bookshop without stopping in to browse, and, usually, making a purchase.

Thanks for visiting, and if you have any feedback to share, or any ideas about the kind of content you’d like to see here, we would love to hear your thoughts.
