Have you finished your Christmas shopping? If you haven’t, I know what makes a great gift. Books are the perfect gifts. Find a local independent bookstore and purchase your books through them. You accomplish two things by shopping local. You purchase a gift and you help your local independent bookstore at the same time.
By helping your local bookstores, you help the local authors that live in your towns and states. These author’s books are not always given the needed space on the Barnes & Nobles’ bookshelves. We need the independent bookstores to do this. They often have consignment agreements with authors to sell their books.
Here are a few independent bookstores:
Annie’s Book Stop, Worcester, MA
The Book Barn, Niantic, CT
Books & Boos, Colchester, CT
The Book Club, East Windsor, CT
The Book Shop, Somerville, MA
Curious Iguana, Downtown Frederick, MD
Dark Delicacies, Burbank, CA
Monte Cristo Bookshop, New London, CT
Seek Books, West Roxbury, MA
These are only a few bookstores that I know of, but there are many more out there. If you know of one, please leave a comment with the name of the bookstore. Please search for your own local bookstore. They are out there and need our support so we can continue browsing the stacks and finding local authors.
