Welcome to Bookshop!
Bookshop is an online bookstore with a mission to financially support independent bookstores and give back to the book community.
We believe that bookstores are essential to a healthy culture of readers and writers. They’re where authors can connect with readers, where we discover new writers, where children get hooked on the thrill of reading that can last a lifetime. They’re also anchors for our downtowns and communities.
As more people buy their books online, we wanted to create an easy, convenient way to get your books and still support local bookstores.
Bookshop will be a B-Corp - a corporation dedicated to the public good. By design, we give away about 75% of our profit margin to the stores, publications, and people that make up the thriving, inspirational culture around books!
Check out #ReadIndieForward, a pay-it-forward movement supporting independent bookstores during the covid-19 crisis by gifting books to friends and family. Participating is fun and easy:

Post to social media that you #ReadIndieForward by gifting a book to a loved one
