BWS stopped posting Amazon links almost seven years ago, and we are looking forward to helping put a dent into Amazon’s ongoing attack on our world of books. When you click a Bookshop link on our site and make a purchase, you will get a good price, great service, and your purchase will generate a small commission for BWS with an equal payment to independent bookstores. wants to give back to everyone who promotes books, authors, and independent bookstores! BWS is proud to be part of a major movement to support local bookstores and authors while offering its readers an alternative to Amazon when buying books online at competitive prices.

I bought my first two books from Bookshop last week, and I am tracking their arrival just like other online orders. It may not be overnight delivery, but I will gladly wait a couple of extra days to support independent stores and authors over Amazon. I hope you will, too.
