inspired recommendations from independent booksellers

About IndieBound

IndieBound began as a community campaign in the US, and was adopted in the UK in 2010.  IndieBound is our umbrella consumer marketing campaign for indie bookshops, and provides point of sale and resources to those shops, as well as book recommendation and community engagement for book-loving consumers.  If you love the personal recommendations from independent bookshops, check our our IndieBound recommendations site, where real booksellers are giving you real advice, based on their passion for real books.  No online algorithms here!

Independent Bookshop Week (IBW) is a campaign run by the Booksellers Association and its members to celebrate independent bookshops on the high streets of the UK & Ireland.This year's IBW takes place Saturday 24th June - Saturday 1st July 2017.

Keep up to date with the campaign via Twitter @booksaremybag and @Indiebound_UK 


IBW is closely associated with the Books Are My Bag campaign, which celebrates all high street bookshops (including chains) in October each year, and is part of the BA's IndieBound marketing initiative, which is modelled on the American campaign of the same name, promoting healthy and diverse high streets and the benefit of community.
