#IndieThursday- Are You In?

Are you on Twitter or Facebook? If so, you have a great opportunity to advocate for independent bookstores each week. Jenn of Jenn's Bookshelves has started a great hashtag campaign called #IndieThursday.

Each week on Thursday, tweet out the books you've bought from independent bookstores that week along with the name of the store and if you know it, the store's @Twittername.

The Facebook #IndieThursday page is here.

This week, I bought Mirage by Matt Ruff and Bury Me Standing by Isabel Fonseca from the Harvard Coop.

If you need to find an independent bookstore in your area, go to and use their Indie Store Finder feature. Many independent bookstores offer online shopping and will ship to your home- so distance is not excuse!

And don't forget to use the tag #IndieThursday so it shows up with all the other posts. It's a great way to show your support for independent bookstores and remind your followers to shop indie, too!

Then come back to Twitter and Facebook on Friday for #FridayReads!

(You can always find me on Twitter at @bostonbibliophl.)
