A book nook or reading chair is the perfect place to curl up and gather your favorite reading materials for a moment of comfort, entertainment, and learning. What can make it even better is knowing that the books you’ve accumulated were acquired from real people who also celebrate books. Luckily, makes it easier than ever to buy books from independent bookstores.

Despite the significant influence of massive online sellers and retail chains, there is proof that local institutions are here to stay. Books can offer new inspiration and perspectives, which is why many independent bookstores have adapted to the 21st century. We at My Modern Met are also happy to collaborate with Bookshop, which allows you to shop through hundreds of local bookstores all under the roof of one platform.

Bookshop has made it their mission to “financially support local, independent bookstores” because they believe that they are an integral part of communities. My Modern Met is thrilled to be a part of this program as they distribute a portion of their sales to these individual entities.
