If you’ve been following my page closely, you’ve probably noticed that I’ve started directing people to Bookshop.org over Amazon. Why? Simply because I LOVE supporting local and independent bookstores, and hope that more people will join me in this!
You can find my books The Art of Tithing and Manifest the Perfect Mate on Bookshop along with thousands of other great reads! I even started a page where you can see what my “favorite picks” are currently, called Paula’s Picks.
If used books are more your style, (because who doesn’t love giving great books new homes?!) then I would recommend the following retailers:
“As an independent bookstore, we strive to offer the same variety and richness of experience as the books on our shelves. And because the only people we’re beholden to are our customers and ourselves, we can focus on what really matters — promoting diverse perspectives, upholding the free exchange of ideas, championing the enduring power of books, and bolstering the great community of readers and authors we’re lucky to be a part of.
Thank you for supporting these lofty goals. Your choice sustains a family business, and allows us to follow our passion for getting the right books into the right hands, 365 days a year.” – Shop Powell’s Now
“We believe reading empowers people, offering them empathy to live for a moment in someone else’s shoes, education—a critical asset to improving one’s life—and an occasional escape to fantastic worlds inhabited by interesting characters. Yes, we save millions of books every year from being destroyed, but our mission goes beyond the environment. We save these books and make them accessible to readers for the chance to shape another mind, share another story, and teach a bit of wisdom.” – Shop Thriftbooks Now
“We believe in the power of knowledge. So our goal is to help those who supply it and share it with those who crave it. Which is why every action we take, and every book purchase you make helps fund it. It’s simple: Every time you purchase a book from BetterWorldBooks.com, we donate a book to someone in need. The books we donate go through hundreds of non-profit organizations. In particular, Books for Africa and Feed the Children partner with us to take large numbers of donated books and get them to people who need them. Books donated as of June 2018: 26 million.” – Shop BetterWorldBooks Now
