Can't see your local book shop on here? Send us an email and we'll fix it right up.



Give your local store a call, send an email and/or check out their website. Many book stores are closing their doors to browsing customers but can still offer click and collect, payment over the phone, online purchasing or free delivery. Your purchase will make their day, PLUS you'll be the proud new owner of a great book. It's a win-win scenario!



Share your book on social media and tag the local bookstore to let your friends and family know that they too, can brighten a bookstore owner's day.
