We went into business for ourselves in May 2005. For the first 9 months, Jade basically lived at the warehouse, running the entire operation on his own while Cori came in to help in the evenings and on weekends. (We still have the cot around the warehouse that Jade slept on when he got tired!).
In January 2006, Cori took the plunge into entrepreneurship and we figured out how to work together (and stay happily married - ok, most of the time) pretty quick!
2007 - 2010 brought lots of changes and growth. In 2008, we started to bring great authors to local schools, including Laurie Halse Anderson, Christopher Paul Curtis, Darren Shan, and Karma Wilson-just to name a few. We also grew our RIF business by almost double between 2008-2011 which gave us the opportunity to provide great books to thousands of children across the US.
In 2013, we launched full Shelf-Ready Library Processing services, Middle and High School Book Fairs, and continued our popular PBC Book Previews-We Keep You Current series. We are excited to continue expanding these services and are always adding new and exciting initiatives and resources for our customers, new and old alike.
