Bookshop.org

I buy an unconscionable raft of goods from Amazon, but I’d rather get my books from a bookstore. This article brings good news.

Bookshop.org allows any independent shop to customise its own online store front, select books to recommend and, any time a bookshop directs a customer to the site through one of its links, it gets 30% of the sale.

… Every time a reader buys a book from an author, publisher, magazine or influencer page, 10% of that purchase will go to the page owner and another 10% into a profit pool for independent bookshops.

… This new platform offers practical solutions to keep our indie bookshops thriving…
