With Amazon and other secular retailers quickly monopolizing the book marketplace, many Catholic consumers are seeking a faith-based alternative for their buying interests. Tumblar House, a quickly growing enterprise in the form of an online bookstore, may be their answer.
Founded in 2001, Tumblar House began as a small Catholic publisher of both fiction and nonfiction. Over time, the company expanded from a publisher and store of simply Tumblar House publications to a vastly growing online marketplace for a wide variety of popular Catholic books, from Pope Benedict’s classic Jesus of Nazareth series to Regina Doman’s novels for young adults and teens.
A clearance section of the website allows easy access to busy customers wishing to quickly browse current deals. Special autographed editions are also available for select titles at no additional cost. Furthermore, writers may submit articles for consideration in The Lounge, a special section of the website devoted to subjects of interest to a Catholic audience, from history and philosophy to reflections on current events. While free shipping is usually provided for orders over $25, it will be available for all purchases through Christmas Day.
Tumblar House supplies books with Catholic values, stories with “moral gravity” that “will leave an indelible mark on the reader, powerfully reinforcing Catholic beliefs and lifestyles.” As an assurance of this goal, Vincent Frankini, Owner and Manager, has begun to develop a parental guide section for all works of fiction so that content is transparent for conscientious readers. The company itself seeks to “embody a new age of chivalry” while simultaneously demonstrating “that the life entrusted to us by Christ should be enjoyed and celebrated.”
In a secular society in which Catholic beliefs are mocked, misunderstood, and erroneously considered dull, Tumblar House provides an effective antidote.
With significant consumer benefits and its strong Catholic core, Tumblar House is a powerful alternative to mainstream retailers.
