Tonight I took time to browse around the web and clicked on the Indie Bound site. If you haven't been there, I hope you will visit. We have so many wonderful independent bookstores but we are gradually losing them because of the large chains, but mostly because of Amazon.com.

I took the time, tonight, to read and understand Indie Bound and I became a part of their community. Books can be ordered from Indie book stores, online just as you would order from Amazon.com. And it was so easy to see some of the great new books on the lists given. I made a wish list immediately, which you can do on the site, and I plan to get the books I want either from a local store like Curiosity Books in Murphy, 46 Valley River Avenue, Murphy, NC 28906 or City Lights in Sylva. If you go to the City Lights website, you can find all the books you want and can order right off their site.
On my sidebar, you will see one of the reasons I think it is smart to shop from your Indie bookstores. I hope you will visit one in your neighborhood soon. If you don't know of one, go to the Indie Bound site and check out their map to find stores near you.
