Independence Day: 9 Big Books From Small Publishers (PHOTOS)

07/04/2010 07:48 am ET | Updated May 25, 2011

This Independence Day, we're continuing our celebration of the independent spirit in the publishing industry by recognizing some of the spectacular successes independent publishers have had over the past decade. The books below are bestsellers, award winners, and books that have had everyone talking, and they were all published by small, independent presses. These books are by no means the only independently published books worth talking about, but they prove that indies still have a major role to play in the publishing industry. Vote on your favorites in the slideshow below, and let us know about the independently published books that you love in the comments section below. If there are enough submissions we'll be happy to continue the celebration next week by creating another feature out of your suggestions. Let's keep the indie spirit alive!
