Bookshop is a startup taking on Amazon to help independent bookstores.
CEO of Bookshop.org, Andy Hunter, stressed that “we’re in it for the long haul, and there’s no venture capital behind Bookshop."
”Bookshop is a B-Corp, with a mission to benefit the public good, and as he and his backers see it, “bookstores are a public good—they are central to the community around books, a gateway into reading for so many of us, the place where authors connect with readers, and essential advocates for books in their communities. Bookshop’s sole purpose is to support them.”
To allay concerns that Bookshop—like Goodreads, which was an indie favorite before it was bought by Amazon—could be sold to the e-tailer, Hunter said that the company’s corporate documents state that it will never sell Bookshop to Amazon or any top U.S. retailer.
We have over 15 curated book lists on our Bookshop storefront, click below to view.
