(Literacy Program Fulfillment)
I want to thank Phoenix Book Company for the gift of books. Our students are very lucky to have you in their corner. Operation School Bell is a wonderful organization to help put books in every students’ hand to take home and read.

I just want to thank you for the wonderful service you provide. I love working with you and appreciate all you do to help our library stretch our meager budget. Phoenix Book Company is the best! I tell everyone:)

I loved hosting a book fair through PBC. Not only was having the fair setup and taken down for me a HUGE, time saving plus, but the selection of books was impressive too, (there was something for everyone!) I had so many comments on how inexpensive the book prices were; even the students with just a few quarters in their pocket were able to buy a book!

(About PBC Book Fairs)
I simply love the ease of the Book Fair. I don't have to do anything but set up tables, run it, and take down tables. I really like the organization of how it is laid out and presented. I love the fact that the tax is included in sticker price -- the fair is very easy to manage when you are alone!

(About PBC Book Fairs)
I greatly appreciate that you were so gracious in dealing with the changes in scheduling beyond my control. Thank you for setting the fair up so nicely and making the accounting so easy. We all were impressed that you set-up & pack-up, have no minimum sales requirement and are available to confer with year round.

(About PBC Book Fairs)
I LOVED that the tax was included in the prices and they were all even amounts. SO EASY. I also felt the prices of the books was excellent and a very good value... I appreciate spending less time on having the Book Fair "customer ready" because full set up is included.

Our Story

May 8, 2005

PBC's Birthday! Jade Corn founds and opens Phoenix Book Company, with some off-hours help from his wife, Cori Ashley.


Growth and change: PBC staffs up and begins building relationships with publishers, authors, and major literacy programs like Reading Is Fundamental.

We also began growing our Phoenix-area school network through author visits, literacy program fulfillment, discounted warehouse deals, and more.


PBC begins developing two new divisions: Shelf-Ready Library Processing and Middle/High School Book Fairs.


We officially launch MS/HS Book Fairs and Full Service Shelf-Ready Processing - our first season sees us process over 2500 books!


Our Book Fair division grows to include all grade levels, K-12. Plus, the PBC Processing team now serves over 125 Valley schools - we doubled the number of books processed per season.


We focused on growing and developing our Book Fairs. We expanded by 20-25% each season and launched the PBC Book Fairs website to support our customers. On the Library Services side, we continue to develop our Easy Order Forms and Collection Check services while processing around 10,000 books per season.

2019-2022 and beyond

Exciting things are brewing here at PBC - we survived a pandemic, launched a new website and an online build a list tool, and began offering Virtual Book Fairs! Our team is growing and we are so excited to keep putting books in the hands of students in Arizona. Join the mailing list below to stay in the loop!
