There is a new deal each week. The prices are typically 30% off list price and usually lower than the price offered by Amazon. Sometimes the books are autographed. Check for new deals each week.
When you take advantage of our deals of the week, not only are you getting great deals on books, you are investing in two organizations (MahoganyBooks.com and AALBC.com) who are dedicated to promoting the diversity and depth of African American literature, in a way that large corporations, motivated solely by maximizing revenue will not.
The Black book ecosystem is much more complex than buying and selling books at the lowest price. It is a battle to retain control over who and how our stories are told. MahoganyBooks, AALBC.com and other independent booksellers are driven to ensure that this happens in an uplifting and empowering way.
Sometimes this means promoting books and authors that are important, even if they are obscure and may not immediately appeal to the majority of readers. Of course we'll promote popular books too, but if you want to continue to see a diverse array of important Black books, we need your business and support.
We are already in an environment, with few bookstores and websites dedicated to Black books. As a result the majority of our book are sold by Amazon. Even with their vast financial resources, Amazon relies on algorithms to sell our books, based on what they think you will most likely buy, never considering what you should buy; there is a difference.AALBC.com's comments powered by Disqus
