So many of you have been asking me what I’ve been reading and/or what I recommend that I thought it would be a great idea for me to start putting together some lists of great books! To that end, I’ve partnered with Bookshop.org to compile those lists and bring them straight to you. The great thing about Bookshop.org is that it’s mission to financially support local, independent bookstores. While you can still find and purchase books online and buy them at a discount, Bookshop.org saves a percentage of those sales and divvies it up between its affiliated bookstores each year! To date, Bookshop.org has raised over $6.5 million dollars for local bookstores.
For you, it’s just as easy as shopping at that BIG website that you are currently using for books but you get the gift of supporting indy bookstores overall or giving your business to a specific indy bookstore! I’ll be creating lists of books you should check out…all you have to do is click on the book that interests you within that list! Prices are competitive and shipping is completed through Ingram.
Bookshop.org offers hardback, paperback, large print, e-book and audiobook versions of most titles…so you can get the book you want in the format that works best for you! E-books are delivered through partnership with Hummingbird but their interface is easy to access and use on your mobile device!
Full disclosure, I’m an affiliate for Bookshop.org, so I get a small commission anytime you buy a book from one of my links too. But I wouldn’t support a platform like this if I didn’t really believe it and enjoy it! I love being able to find the books I want while knowing that I’m keeping my local independent bookstore alive and thriving!
Check out the lists I’ll be putting together in the very near future to find GREAT books that I’ve loved. Give Bookshop.org a try and see how supporting local really feels!
