If you’ve been around for a while, you know that we like books here because reading is FUNDAMENTAL! Anyway, local bookstores are dying but you can help them out by shopping at them instead of online or big box stores. Bonus, more variety in selection. Don’t know where to start? See if where you can buy that book locally with Indie Bound, the website that tells you where to buy books.
The site lets you plug in your zip code, city, or full address (US only, sorry) and it spits out local bookstores for you to explore at your leisure. You can also search for books that you want to buy and it will show where you can go that has them in stock.
This is a nice way to support local business and get out of your house. The books may be a bit more expensive then they are online but the customer service is likely going to be a lot more personal. Plus, buying local stock cuts down on delivery related pollution.
