Connecting to Indie Booksellers through Indiebound
One of my favorite local booksellers (Mrs. Dalloway's in Berkeley) turned me onto Indiebound, which allows readers to connect with their local indie stores. Just type in your zip code, and it shows you what stores are near you, and how to order your next favorite book through them. I've used my link as an example, but you can use this with any title. If you want to support your independent bookstores, this is as good a resource as I've seen.
If you're a writer looking to bond with your local stores, it might help to promote your book through Indiebound. I'm hearing a lot of anti-Amazon sentiment among the indies these days, and many sellers might appreciate you taking the effort to stir up direct sales through the indies.
