"Advertising on 49th Shelf is an ideal market for the Vancouver Writers Fest. We reach a dedicated readership of book lovers who are keen to discover great Canadian writing."
– Ann McDonell, Vancouver Writers Fest

“49th Shelf is an excellent place to advertise your Canadian book titles. Not only are the visitors actively looking for new Canadian books – the lists of recommended reading are one of the key reasons people comb through the site – but the animated web ad option allows you to make your own affordable mini-lists of books that your publisher recommends.”
– Evan Munday, Coach House Books

“We’re thrilled with the results of our Think Independent contest, hosted by 49th Shelf. Given their direct-to-consumer reach, it was a no-brainer for us to team up with them for the online portion of our awareness campaign. We’re looking forward to working with them again in the future.”
— Tanya Snyder, Marketing Manager, Literary Press Group
