Places to Buy Books
You can purchase books from the following retailers.
If you are looking to buy or sell books, I highly recommend checking out the PangoBooks app. You can purchase books at a great price from other readers. You can check out my store here.

This is a great place to order books because it supports independently owned bookstores across the US. Every book you purchase from this website gives the profits to the independent bookstore of your choice. Read more about how it works here.
You can shop my favorites or any books on their website here. If you’re curious what books they have, just search for a book or author in the search bar down below.

Book Subscription Services
These are the book subscriptions I use and recommend.

Aardvark Book Club
A great and affordable book subscription is Aardvark. They are similar to Book of the Month but have different book selections (including a lot more romance than Book of the Month).

*This promotion is available to US residents only at this time and only new members are eligible (one usage per household).
Book of the Month
Out of the many book subscriptions available, I’ve found this to be one of the most affordable.
If you read mostly adult books, then this is a great option for you. You can choose a book each month or skip it if you don’t see anything you like. You can also add on books for a low price.
Recently, they added the option to choose audiobooks instead of hardcover books if that is something you’re interested in getting.
Sign up for your first month here.

Advanced Reader Copies
Ever wonder how people get to read books before they are published? Check out these places to request and get advanced reader copies.
This is a site that I never hear anyone talk about, but I highly recommend it to anyone who is just starting out in requesting advanced reader copies (ARCs). They often do specials where they offer gift cards and other incentives to get people to read ARCs and write reviews of them. If you’re interested in joining Reedsy Discovery, then check them out here.
A very popular site to request ARCs is NetGalley.
They have both eBook ARCs and audiobook ARCs. They also have a lot of the more popular books on there, so you can check them out here.
These are some places that I recommend for purchasing bookish merchandise such as bookmarks, clothing, book sleeves, and more!
These are shops that I’ve purchased bookmarks from in the past.
Brooke’s Bookish Shop
Brooke is a friend that I made through Bookstagram, and she has a cute Etsy shop where she sells mainly bookmarks but also blind dates with a book.
The Autumn Leaf Shop on Etsy
I have also purchased bookmarks from this shop that were so cute. They also sell book sleeves and other bookish merchandise. You can check out their shop here.
These are shops where I’ve purchased book sleeves to protect my books when I take them on the go.
Grace by Shan
I purchased a large Harry Potter themed book sleeve from this shop because I was having a hard time finding a good sized book sleeve that would hold large hardcover books. I am happy to say that the book sleeve I purchased from them is great for carrying around large hardcover books so that I can keep them protected.
