Harvard Book Store and Shelfie have partnered up to offer ebook bundles on a select number of New York Times best-selling books. If you visit the Harvard Book Store, you’ll find these shelf talkers around the store!
We are very excited about this partnership. In summer 2014, Shelfie embarked on its first independent bookstore campaign. We’re pleased to build upon that to offer Harvard’s customers the digital copies of their beloved print books.
Shelfie’s VP Content, Mary Alice Elcock, summed up our love of books, print and digital: “What makes Shelfie unique is that we are a digital company in support of print. We only make a sale when a reader has first purchased a print book. We are incredibly excited to be working with Harvard Book Store, an exceptional independent bookseller, to promote ebook bundling to their customers.”
There is a select number of books are participating in our promotions. I thought we would highlight a few of our favorite recommended reads! Own these books already? Get the ebooks on Shelfie to complete your collection.

Life of Pi is at once a realistic, rousing adventure and a meta-tale of survival that explores the redemptive power of storytelling and the transformative nature of fiction. It’s a story, as one character puts it, to make you believe in God.
