During these difficult times, we’re more grateful than ever for the independent bookstores that help us find the perfect read to escape into a different world. While many stores across the country are temporarily closing their doors to help protect their communities, many are offering online ordering and can still help bring you your next read. Please consider placing an order from your local store to show your support. Take a look through the list below to find a store near you!
This is a working list that we will continue to update—if you know of any other stores that should be included, do let us know!
