About 49thShelf.com

49thShelf.com is produced by the Association of Canadian Publishers with financial support from the Department of Canadian Heritage and Ontario Creates.

It has one purpose: to make it easier for readers to discover Canadian books. Canadian books in all genres, from bestselling authors to new talent, from publishers large and small, from all regions of the country.

There are a ton of ways to find an amazing Canadian read on 49thShelf.com:

  • Use the Search function at the top of every page to search through our nearly 80,000-strong database of titles; as you’ll see, there are a few options for how to refine your search (e.g., by author or book).
  • Check out our weekly selection of Featured Lists and new releases on the homepage: these are lovingly assembled either by our editor.
  • Read our frequently updated blog, which comprises editors’ musings, guest posts and lists, author interviews and podcasts, and fun announcements and podcasts.
  • Hop over to Book Lists to see great lists and make your own.
  • Join us on Twitter and Facebook and be part of the 49thShelf.com conversation! We pull lots of members’ Twitter/FB suggestions into the site, and many Canadian authors contribute to the discussions there as well.
