Books From Home
Updated: Mar 23, 2020
With the current situation many people are self isolating or in quarantine but might be feeling well enough to read a book or two, but where to get books if you can’t go out? Particularly if you want to keep supporting an independent bookshop and don’t have an e-reader (or just like paper books sometimes). Inspired by the author Tasha Suri who put together a crowd sourced list on twitter, here are a few links to places where you can order books online or by phone (inclusion in this list is not necessarily endorsement).
There is also a link to some free stories at the bottom of the page!
If you want to buy directly from smaller Independent Publishers then do check out this article.
There is a list of London bookshops in this article by the Evening Standard.
