So today’s post is a little different. I wanted to take some time to tell you about this awesome new website. It is called bookshop.org. The goal behind the website was to build a platform to help support local indie bookstores by ordering online. So there are two options to shopping on here. 1. You can search a bookstore on there map and the full profit will go to that bookstore. 2. You can just buy a book without searching a specific store and the profit will be added to their earnings pool. The earnings pool will then be evenly distributed among independent bookstores (even those that don’t use Bookshop).
I am also happy to say that I have become an affiliate with Bookshop. The cool thing about their affiliate program is that I can set up lists of books that I recommend. So every month I am going to add my monthly reads to the shop. I will receive a small commission from the sales made through my link at no extra cost to you, but the profit will still go to a bookstore of your choosing or to the earnings pool.
So far I have a recent favorites list up so you can go see what I have been loving. I’d love for you to go check it out!
Bookshop.org is a great way for the book community to support local indie bookstores. It is important to support them anyway, but now especially with the Covid-19 closures we need to be even more mindful of that. So give bookshop.org a try.
