Support Your Indie Bookstore - Buy An Ebook!

Let's help our local bookstores.
Panzer and I didn't know you could do this until we saw it at GalleyCAT. We discovered you can buy ebooks through local bookstores using your Kobo ereader.

Panzer and I are equal ereader ebook buyers. We buy from Amazon, Barnes and Noble's Nook store and the Kobo store. It is true, we have felt bad when we read about the closing of brick and mortar bookstores, but we couldn't get our ebooks there. But change is here.  Now, it turns out Kobo is ahead of the pack for helping keep local bookstores in business.

We've already been looking into the Kobo Writing Life site because we're considering publishing our ebooks directly through KWL in addition to Amazon's KDP and Smashwords. (We'll be doing a post on this later.) Finding out about their partnership with brick and mortar stores, makes our decision easier.

If you want to learn how to use your Kobo ereader to buy ebooks from your local bookstore and which bookstores are participating, tootle over to Buying Ebooks Through Your Local Indie Bookstore
