Independent Bookstores to Shop at While Sheltering in Place

As we continue to stay home and shelter in place, one thing is becoming clear: we all need more books. Are we going to read them? *shrugs* Who can say. It depends on the day. But we need more books, and since the libraries are closed there is only one thing to do: we have to buy books from our local independent bookstore.

We’ve learned there are myriad ways to support indie bookstores right now, but first you need to find one to support. Whether you are a long-time customer of independent bookstores or are just trying to figure out a way to get a puzzle and some books for your kids in your home ASAP, they can definitely help you out. We’ve compiled a list of indie bookstores in the U.S., Canada, and the UK, and a brief rundown of how they are currently operating. This is by no means a comprehensive list of every. single. independent. bookstore—but we tried our best.

If you are able, find a local bookstore and place an order (or donate). If you are already buying books from your local bookstore—hey, great job! Maybe take a look at some of these others and buy a shirt or mystery box for a friend. Or why not plan a trip to visit a few new bookstores when we’re able to travel again and buy some gift cards in advance! And if you aren’t able to spend any money right now, post about them on social media—spreading the word that these bookstores are still around is so important.

All information presented here was current at the time of publishing, but please make sure to double check with the bookstore before placing an order!

One of the things we miss most about this lockdown is that we don’t get to chat to our customers anymore 😭 As a way of acknowledging the amazing support we’ve received, not just in this strange time, but at all times, and reflect the community that is keeping us going, we thought we’d bring some of our favourite customers to you! ❤️ We’ll tell you a bit about them and the books they’re reading. Next up is Sheena.. . . Sheena lives in NW London but visits us whenever she’s in Hackney and had a ticket to our @danez_smif event which was sadly cancelled for obvious reasons 😭.. You can always tell a customer who knows their poetry and Sheena is one of them. This might be because she’s part of the poetry collective Four Brown Girls Who Write (alongside fellow poets Roshni Goyate, Sharan Hunjan and Sunnah Khan), their debut collection was published by @femzinelondon and they’ve performed to sold out audiences at Edinburgh fringe. We’ve sold out now but you can buy their first book and zine via the link in their bio here @4browngirlswhowrite if you need some lockdown inspiration ✨ They have a set of 4 pamphlets out with @roughtradebooks soon and they are definitely ones to watch. . . Sheena is reading Funny Weather by @olivialanguage and the new poetry collection Homie by @danez_smif She says “I have loved Funny Weather because its curious, insightful and calm. Homie has been a lightening rod into my imagination, Danez is a magician on the page.” . . Thank you Sheena, we miss you! . #wemissyou #bookshopcustomers #lockdownliterature #stayathome #indiebookshop #justsupportsmall #hackney #loveclapton #wearestillhere
