Ask Your Local Library to Bring in Copies of Lighthouse Trails Books

bigstockphoto.com

Many of our readers may not realize that Lighthouse Trails Publishing has numerous different wholesale outlets (SpringArbor, CBD, Anchor, Amazon, Barnes and Noble, etc.*) where our books can be purchased. One of those outlets is Baker and Taylor. Baker and Taylor is the main distributor that services libraries across the United States. Since Lighthouse Trails began fifteen years ago, Baker and Taylor has purchased numerous copies of Lighthouse Trails books that now sit on library shelves throughout America.

If you would like to see Lighthouse Trails books on your local library shelves, just call or visit your local library and ask the librarian to bring into circulation particular books of ours. You may need the ISBN numbers, which you can find on the back cover of all of our books. We also include the ISBN numbers of all our books in our catalog.**

Having your local library bring in Lighthouse Trails books will do two things: first, you can enjoy reading our books at no cost to you; and second, it provides an opportunity for people who are not familiar with Lighthouse Trails books to read these books.

* Note #1: Even though our profit margin is greatly reduced when books are purchased through these wholesale outlets because of the high discounts they require from us, we believe these outlets have provided a much greater reach in readership for our materials.

** Note #2: If you do not have a copy of a title you wish to see in your local library, you can find the ISBN number for each of our books in our catalog. We only include ISBN numbers in our catalog for books that we actually publish. If you don’t see an ISBN number on a book in the catalog, it is because that is not our own book.

10 Practical Things You Might Not Know About Lighthouse Trails Publishing & Research

Here are 10 things you might find useful about the practical aspects of Lighthouse Trails Publishing & Research Project.

1. WEBSITES—We have two main sites: www.lighthousetrails.com, which is the publishing site and store that sells all our products; and www.lighthousetrailsresearch.com, which is where our news blog is located as well as the main research site. The blog has thousands of up to date articles, and the research site has hundreds of archived pages of the research we have done these past 14 year. The store site, the research site, and the blog each have their own search engine you can use to find materials and information.

2. AUTHORS—We have several author websites that we have built for our authors. Many of our authors (we have about 35 now) are in full time ministry, and we hope you will consider supporting them. You can read about each author on his or her author website, and most of those sites have articles that the authors have written in addition to books and booklets they have written.

3. LIBRARIES—Our books are now in hundreds of libraries across the U.S., and if you would like to get some of our titles into your own local library, it’s easy and doesn’t cost you anything. Just call or visit your library, give the librarian the title and/or the ISBN of any title and ask her to bring that title into circulation. Tell your librarian that our books can be ordered through Baker & Taylor, which is the main distributor to U.S. libraries.

4. BOOKSTORES—All of the Lighthouse Trails books and DVDs (the ones we publish ourselves) are carried by national mainstream distributors including Ingram, SpringArbor, Baker & Taylor, and Anchor. This means that virtually ANY bookstore (with the exception of LifeWay which will not carry or order any LT products) in the U.S. can easily order any of our titles. Many times people call us and tell us that their local bookstore has told them they cannot get our books. But actually, they can! Even if a bookstore can’t buy through these distributors for some reason, the bookstore can always buy at wholesale prices directly from us.

5. ONLINE BOOK OUTLETS & MINISTRIES—All of the Lighthouse Trails books and DVDS (the ones we publish ourselves) are available to the general public through numerous online outlets including Amazon, Barnes and Noble, CBD, etc. Ministries such as The Berean Call, Understand the Times, Caryl Productions, Scripture Truth, Faith View Books, and several others each carry a number of our books and booklets as well.

LTRJ-logo-lg6. NEWSLETTERS & JOURNAL—Lighthouse Trails has both an e-newsletter, (see archives) which is delivered to readers’ e-mail boxes, and this is sent out three times a month. We also have a low-cost subscription-based print journal, which is 32 pages and sent to homes and offices every other month. Many of our readers are getting both the e-newsletter and the journal, while some prefer just one option. We encourage our readers to get the print journal, regardless of whether they get the e-mail because it is great for sharing with others and also very convenient.

7. E-BOOKS & BOOKLETS—Lighthouse Trails books, booklets, and now print journals are also available in both e-pub and PDF formats. Use e-pubs if you have an e-reader, and use PDFs if you don’t and just want to read on your computer or print the document. You can purchase our e-books, e-booklets, and e-journals directly from our website, or you may buy them from Amazon’s Kindle program or Barnes and Noble’s Nook program.

8. SPEAKERS/LECTURERS—A number of our authors are available to speak at your church, conference, radio program, or group: Warren B. Smith, Ray Yungen, Roger Oakland, Chris Lawson, Anita Dittman (in MN only), Carl Teichrib, Cedric Fisher, Greg Reid, Jim Fletcher, John Lanagan, Lynn Lusby Pratt, Mary Danielsen, Mike Oppenheimer, and Sandy Simpson. You may acquaint yourself with these authors by reading their materials. Several of them have LT author websites where you can read articles and get contact information. Visit this page here to see our list. These are wonderful brothers and sisters who are committed to the Lord and His Word and the defending of truth.

9. INTERNATIONAL MISSIONS—In 2010, Lighthouse Trails began supporting the mission work of the Bryce Homes Program, homes for needy Christian families now located in several different countries under the leadership of Understand the Times. Since then, Lighthouse Trails readers have contributed substantially to this Gospel-focused missions effort.

TENT INDUSTRY—In 2010, Lighthouse Trails started a small division called The Shepherd’s Garden and created our very own line of organic Bible-verse tea. We now have 6 different blends plus a sampler box. We started this side industry as a way to help keep Lighthouse Trails financially stable. Lighthouse Trails is not a non-profit, and thus, we don’t get the number of donations that a 501 (c) 3 organization would get. The tea is a great way to give us a boost without having it be labor intensive, which would draw us away from the work we do at Lighthouse Trails. In the last 5 years, many many LT readers have purchased the tea and tell us they love how it tastes and love the little KJV verses on a tag on each bag of tea.
