Indie Bookstores You Can Shop At From Anywhere

With the pandemic having such a drastically negative affect on small businesses, the book world held its breath and waited to see how this would affect independent bookstores. Indie bookstores adapted remarkably well through online ordering and curbside pickup, but no one knew what the outcome would be for brick and mortar stores years into the pandemic.

The numbers are in, and the news is this: indie bookstores are thriving.

The New York Times reported an impressive rally after the slump of book sales in 2020, and a good 80% of bookseller respondents to a survey put out by the American Booksellers Association said that profits were up in 2021 from 2019-2020. Since our last post on indie bookstores to shop at online, penned by Christine Hoxmeier, over 300 new independent bookstores have opened. The even better news: many of these new indie bookstores are owned and operated by booksellers of color.

This post is an updated guide on our 2020 list of indie bookstores you can shop at from anywhere online because they’ll ship anywhere, with a selection of bookstores from each U.S. state. Now more than ever is a perfect time to shop indie, and the increase in online availability means that we can support local bookstores from areas we can’t readily access. This is by no means an exhaustive list (we’d be here all day), but a concentrated effort to highlight a diverse list of established and new independent bookstores that support online ordering, as well as bookstores that have expanded their online ordering selections.

Happy book buying!
