Hey, everybody, it’s Buy Indie Day!
May 1st has been declared Buy Indie Day. The idea: buy one book—paperback, hardcover, audiobook, whatever you want!—at an independent bookstore near you.
Here’s my suggestion. Head out to that independent bookstore near you and buy Jessica Valenti’s The Purity Myth, which I was supposed to write about at length this week and didn’t get to. It is awesome.
And if you’ve still got money burning a hole in your pocket after that (and really, who doesn’t have extra cash these days?) today would be a perfect day to pre-order Lessons from the Fat-o-sphere from somewhere like Powell’s or my own local feminist indie, Women and Children First. At this point, pre-ordering is practically just ordering, because holy crap, THE BOOK WILL BE AVAILABLE ON TUESDAY!
If your favorite local indie has a website, please leave a link in comments.
