The pop-up independent bookstore, owned by Abbigail “Abbi” Glen, opened just under a year ago. Typically, she brings her selection of books to coffee shops and other small businesses, like Enderly Coffee, Sunflour Bakery, and Pepperbox Doughnuts. Whatever she doesn’t have on hand, she can order for you.
But since coronavirus, she’s focused on e-commerce.
“Reading is so essential,” Glen says. “I’m in a position to really make a change and educate people, through books. People really are trying to better understand what’s going on. It’s beautiful.”
How to support: Order books online. You can shop Abbi’s favorites directly on the site, or you can send her your wishlist and she’ll order the books for you.
She’s also working on a list of Black literature, including books written by Black authors and resources for those who want to learn more about systemic racism.
And if you’re in a book club of five people or more, you’ll get 12 percent off your club’s books if you partner with Shelves.
