Do you enjoy shopping online but wish you could support your local bookshop more? Then read on . . .

While I appreciate the convenience, value and choice that some of the big online providers like Amazon can provide, I’m also a huge fan of shopping locally especially at an independent bookshop. Shops like The Edinburgh Bookshop provide a place in the community for book lovers and readers of all ages to browse and discover new books.

I may be late to the party but I’ve recently discovered a new way of shopping online in a way that can support your local bookshop. The service is called Hive. The online site offers books, ebooks, DVDs, CDs, and various gifts, much like some of the larger online stores, but what’s unique is that it gives a proportion of every sale back to local bookshops. Even better, you can choose which independent shop should receive a percentage of your sale. All these benefits, plus it provides free home delivery within the UK.

I will adding links to my books and other products on Hive in future. Customers can then choose to shop online and support their local independent bookshop. I will also receive a small fee if you click through on my links, so you will be supporting my blog and writing too!

If you click on an affiliate link on this page and make a purchase, I’ll get a small commission that supports the cost of running this blog. The price of any purchase you make stays the same. It’s a win-win!

Thanks for your support.
