Non-Amazon Online Bookstores


As Amazon announces their priorities during the COVID-19 crisis, maybe we should take a little pressure off them. They may have trouble shipping books now or in the near future, temporarily.



With the help of a bunch of people on Facebook, I’ve collected some online paperback book sources for you to consider. You NEED to buy some books when you’re shut in, right? Many of these also sell e-books, too. Though I don’t think Amazon/Kindle is interrupted, a lot of people have other kinds of e-readers, including me.

I’m giving preference to my own publishers’ sites—can’t blame me for that, right? I haven’t tried all of these, but they’ve all been recommended. Some of them offer curbside pickup. Some are beloved local bookstores and some of those have had to close the physical building to customers.

Feel free to add your favorites in the comments. Let’s keep reading!

Hi Kaye,

Thanks for this list. What a great reminder we have other sources.

I'd like to add BelleBooks to your list. I'll admit they are my publisher, but they have many great authors.
