Any indie bookshops open
16

BBBear · 31/03/2020 11:23

I’m going to order a ton of books to see us all through isolation. My local bookshop is closed for all orders so I had intended to use Amazon, unless anyone can recommend an I die bookshop currently open to online orders?

There is a lovely, albeit small, bookshop in London called word on the water (it is on a barge near King's Cross) I know they have a website although I suspect choice might be limited due to their size. https://wordonthewater.squarespace.com/

Try hive books - they will let you know which independents near you are open/delivering/available for collection

I think Hive are having some issues at the moment so they’re suggesting people buy through Simon from Big Green Books. I’ve bought plenty from him before he he’s fab.

This account retweets lots of indie bookshops and is worth a follow

twitter.com/booksaremybag

Have a look at their feed for an idea of who is still open and who has closed

They also do 'buy a stranger a book' every week which is lovely.

you can check out which bookshops are in your area and whether they’re delivering or not.
