Above the Treeline Logo

I have discovered one of the best new tools for our industry; a tool designed to work along with your POS software to help you maintain your inventory and be able to see what your peers are stocking and selling. That tool is Above the Treeline and it allows your representatives to help you maintain a stronger turning inventory.

  • Above the Treeline is web based, nothing to download

Above the Treeline is available in a FREE VERSION called Base Camp. I strongly encourage you to check out the FREE DEMO at www.abovethetreeline.com. Over the past several months, I have been working with independent stores throughout the United States that have already found and started using Above the Treeline. I have helped these stores find old, non-moving titles and return them to us for credit thus freeing them to bring in key backlist titles, key authors, store top sellers, industry top sellers, and new releases.

  • We can help increase your turns and strengthen your inventory selection by creating suggested pull lists and suggested orders - based off your store turns

If you have questions after viewing the FREE DEMO and would like to talk to a store using the software please contact me. I will provide you with contact information for an Independent Book Store Owner and peer willing to answer questions and share the benefits of Above the Treeline.

  • A clean and turning inventory will help you with your cash flow and allow your customers the opportunity to see fresh, exciting new product when they step through your doors.

In these tough economic times we can all use a helping hand. Our goal is to partner with you and become Stronger Together.

If you have any questions please feel free to contact us at booksellers@waterbrookmultnomah.com or by calling us toll free at 1-800-603-7051

Rise and Shine - By Liz Curtis Higgs


Rise and Shine
by Liz Curtis Higgs

When you rise from your bed, how many minutes does it take before you truly shine? Oh, dear. That long. Might I have just two of those precious minutes each morning? Two minutes to whisper a gentle word of encouragement, to brush a feather across your funny bone, to prove how beautiful and valuable you are to God? Two minutes. No calories, no squat thrusts, I promise. Rise, sister mine. And shine.

Busy Mom's Devotional

The Busy Mom’s Devotional
by Lisa T. Bergren

The Busy Mom’s Devotional makes a vibrant, growing relationship with God seem do-able, and shows that the life-lessons Christ taught to a handful of fishermen are just as applicable to moms driving minivans and making corporate decisions. In the time it takes to empty an e-mail inbox or drive a child to soccer practice, Lisa T. Bergren draws harried women God-ward with 10-minute devotions including Scripture, real life illustrations, and reflective questions to think on through the day and week. Using this heartfelt, insightful guide, readers can begin the lifetime habit of devotion, even when time is at a premium.
