Shop the global, independent bookstore marketplace this holiday season rather than the big box retail online stores like Amazon!

Booksale ImageIf you are buying books or collectibles this holiday season, the Independent Online Booksellers Association (IOBA), founded in 1999, is a good place to start. With over 350 members from 18 countries, this trade association offers high-quality stock and maintains professional bookselling standards. Each store is unique, and their inventories range from more recent used books to hard-to-find out-of-print books,  antiquarian books, maps, and collectibles. Since the items are sourced from throughout the world, it is the perfect place to find a special gift.

Because IOBA  sellers are also both online and independent, these small businesses are an ideal first stop on both Indie Day—Saturday, November 27th
and Cyber-Monday–November 29th.
