Indie Bound

Here is another site for avid readers. The site promotes indie bookstores (independently owned businesses). Joining the community allows you to create your own reading wish list which you can send to friends and family, perfect for gift giving ideas.

Other features of the site include:

  • create book lists with books they want, books for their reading group, their current reading stack—anything
  • post comments on stores, whether it be a review of each store, a personal experience there, some recommendations — anything that can help other people learn more about that store
  • edit existing stores to add more information — store hours, pictures of the store, etc.
  • add interest tags both to their own accounts and to stores…tags like “southern literature” or “harry potter” help connect users and stores, and help everyone discover new things!
  • become fans of stores they know & love — so that other people can find stores through their user profile
  • add new stores — great indie retailers they’re familiar with
  • add other users as friends, and leave notes for other users
