itself is not a physical store and does not purchase, print, publish, or warehouse books. acts as a purveyor of new books (distributed solely through Ingram) by linking online shoppers with their favorite local vendors in order to traffic book profits toward indie booksellers with their preservation in mind. 

If you have a specific book store you would like to support, we recommend using our Bookstore Finder to find their affiliate/book store page on our website. If you order through the site using their specific portal, all proceeds will go straight to their store instead of the general pool that is split up evenly among all registered bookstores. 

Since is not a physical bookstore, cannot feature in-store / curbside pickup options. If you are looking for in-store or curbside pickup options we suggest you get in touch with your local bookstore directly to inquire if they have those ordering options available.
