Love Your Indie!

Support independent booksellers and get free books? We’re in!

This weekend sees the launch of the Love Your Indie loyalty card scheme, rewarding book lovers for supporting independent booksellers, with over 100 bookshops participating nationwide!

Get your card this Saturday in the Guardian Weekend magazine, register it online, grab your book wish list and hotfoot it to the nearest participating store. For every £10 spent you get a stamp; ten stamps gets you a free book provided by Independent Alliance publishers, and you get 20% off when you first use your card (see the website for T&Cs).

There are some amazing indie booksellers taking part including Wooflson and Tay, Books and More and Battle of the Bookshops contenders News From Nowhere and Much Ado. As if we needed a reason to plan some bookshop themed day trips!

Love Your Indie is run by a collective of independent publishers including Foyles, Serpent’s Tail, Quercus, Granta and Faber, in association with the Guardian and Observer, and the list of reward books will change regularly – the current offerings include The Invisible Ones by Stef Penney, The Epigenetics Revolution by Nessa Carey and The Picture Book by Jo Baker.

Let us know which indie booksellers you love and will be showing support for!
