Non-published Products
We market a variety of non−published products, including vitamins and related health products, jewelry, merchandise, wine, tours, financial services, mailing list rentals and royalty and license agreements.
Non−published products and services are becoming increasingly important in our array of offerings to our customers. We have launched community−based catalogs, some using the Reader’s Digest brand and others not, in health, cooking, gardening, outdoors, wine, jewelry, vitamin, and skin care, that contain select, quality products for our customers. We also offer financial services to help meet the diverse needs of our customers.
Retail
We publish books for children and adults that are sold primarily through retail stores of all kinds.  Last year we sold nearly 9 million books across 46 countries and in 35 languages.
