I hope everyone is taking care of themselves during this difficult time and doing the best they can to limit exposure (for you and others). But just as important is making sure that your mental health is okay, especially with disruption in routine.
Sometimes it helps to focus on what we can control more than what we can’t. On Twitter, I’ve seen a huge gathering in the community from readers to bloggers to authors coming together to help people and businesses affected during this time. So I thought to compile a list a list of bookstores currently offering free shipping.
Please check it out for anyone who’s able and wanting to support authors who have been impacted by the cancelled events and book launches. (Or if you just wanted to order some books and support indies.) Details about their offers are also listed below.
If I missed any stores, please let me know in the comments!
