Happy (Upcoming) Independent Bookstore Day!

As is tradition, here are a whole bunch of links to support indies tomorrow for Independent Bookstore Day! Where possible, the books/stores that’ve been paired up are specific to preorder campaigns, signed copies, or discounts; these are noted with an asterisk. (Note: bookplates etc. available while supplies last, and I am not responsible for stores not updating their sites with this info.)

Please support these wonderful stores and help ensure they’re still there when the pandemic ends, and beyond!

Happy Indie Bookstore Day!

Here at LGBTQReads the sole non-donation income that keeps the site running does come from a certain website’s affiliate links, but don’t let that fool you into thinking we don’t love indies, especially the ones that carry small-press/self-pub queer books! To celebrate those very stores, here are a bunch of links to celebrate indie bookstore day the best way possible and get some amazing books in the process!

This will be an annual feature, so if a bookstore you love isn’t on this year’s list, it may be on next year’s! I obviously couldn’t feature every store or every book, but if this post sells a few books and even helps people find some signed copies of their faves, I feel good about it!

Note: I did not list a book as signed if the *listing* for the book did not say it, but many of these books were pulled from “Signed Books” lists on the sites. If you want a signed copy, double check!
