Want to show your love for your local bookstore? We’ve previously given you 6 ways to support your favorite booksellers, and there are more tips where that came from! Here are 5 more ways you can help out the bookstores near you.

Leave a shop review

Does the bookstore around the corner have a soothing atmosphere? Do they have their own coffee shop, or great programs for young readers? Whatever it is that draws you in, why not highlight it by leaving a review on websites like Yelp, or even just leaving a positive note on the store’s Facebook page? Showing why you think your local bookstore is a valuable part of the community is a great way to show you care and bring in more book lovers just like you!

Don’t miss the fun lifestyle products

Most bookstores don’t only sell books anymore. Whether you’re a stationary fan looking for fancy notebooks and pens, or you are looking for a comfy pair of socks to keep you cozy as you dive into your latest read, you can always use your local shop to help lead the full-fledged bookworm lifestyle you’ve always dreamed of. Plus, there are plenty of great gift options for those closest to you!

Share shop initiatives on social media

Is your favorite bookstore supporting a charity or raising awareness for a specific issue? Whether the focus is on your community or a wider issue, putting your support behind there initiatives is going to help your local bookshop while allowing you to contribute to a good cause.

Get deals right to your inbox with newsletters
