Independent bookstores are few and far between, especially in today’s world. As much as Amazon Prime is helpful in today’s world, it has made it incredibly difficult for smaller bookstores to survive. That’s why I’ve chosen to include a bookstore on this list. When you’re bored and looking for a good book to read on a snowy winter night, consider buying from an indie seller. Named after Harriett Tubman, the Harriett Bookstore in Philadelphia celebrates books written by female authors. They cultivate an environment that’s a beautiful safe space for women who are artists, writers, and activists.
The beautiful thing about Harriet’s is that they bring together books that you may have never heard of before. Without well-read taste makers like this, you might never know to search for these titles when looking on Amazon. So many of the books they sell have such important and uplifting messages about feminism and equality. Check out The Harriett Bookstore Instagram, and please consider buying a book through their website.
