• indie bookseller's day

    From Ogg@21:4/106.21 to All on Saturday, April 29, 2023 19:49:00

    It's indie bookseller day! a celebration and a reminder that
    independent bookstores would appreciate your business. The
    online behemoth "A-n" doesn't count.

    https://bookshop.org is a wonderful portal to look for your
    favourite shop and place an order. And.. for the limited few
    hours left today, they are offering FREE SHIPPING to
    destinations in USA, UK and Spain.


    Bookshop.org has an interesting origin. One story is here:

    world

    I compared a few title searches at bookshop.org and A-n, and
    the bookshop.org's price was a bit less. Combine that with
    free shipping, the result is quite nice.

    Your purchase goes to support your favourite bookshop, and
    member shops (like mine) benefit from the pool too. ;)

    Shameless plug..
    My storefront = https://bookshop.org/shop/ashliesbooks

    But you can drop by the root site and select ANY shop in your
    State (USA), or country (UK, Spain).

    Happy reading! ..and thanks for supporting independents.

    I haven't yet read the wired article but I just entered the shop itself.
    Looks like their list of books is quite interestingly curated.

    I need to give it more chances as today I'm in no mood to buy a book, but if I'm right with the idea of a boutique bookstore just online, then I think they deserve some more traffic from me.

    thanks for pointing,

    ... Xerox Alto was the thing. Anything after we use is just a mere copy.
