Buying A.A. Literature in Bulk: Suggestions from Anonymus Press

Anonymous Press has long served a good many in the recovery field, and we have often been blessed to work with them.

Many may know how much we recommend that individuals and groups obtain Pamphlet P-53, the A.A. General Service Conference-approved pamphlet: The Co-Founders of Alcoholics Anonymous: Biographical Sketches Their Last Major Talks. We believe this pamphlet lays out the early A.A. picture in Dr. Bob’s own words, and in some measure those of Bill W.

We have recommended that people buy these pamphlets in bulk and distribute them free to individuals, meetings, meeting literature racks, conferences, and other 12-Step events.

And Anonymous Press has just posted the following message on how to get them easily:


Standard Big Books, The 12×12 and most other AA literature should be available through your local intergroup. This is usually the fastest way to get AA books.

The Portland Oregon Intergroup offers online ordering of most AA literature and will ship nationwide. This is a great resource and a good way to order directly from an AA office rather than a regular bookstore or a rehab.

There is a good list of literature available from AAWS at this wonderful Web site. (

One choice in Canada is the London, Ontario Intergroup

The Australian Nation Office has a full list of available AA literature on their Web site at
The literature item codes used there may differ from those used in your location. and Hazelden also offer many AA books for sale online.
