PM Press seems pretty solid also.

I'm not sure if this is too far from the list you got going, but Powell's in Portland has an online store that has almost anything you could be looking for. If much rather support them if it came between them and say amazon.

@free_appalachia Thanks! And don't worry about Powell's not being strictly a bookstore. Share away!

Even better would be if you can make it down to your local independant bookseller who loves books and customers and can give real recommendations based on knowing you vs an algorithm's id of how to up-sell you.

@gemlog True. That would be better. However, I have no local bookstores. And the closest thing I do have (which isn't close) is a a big box store. So, it's good to have online resources for me and others in a similar situation.

@delve I understand. I live in a small town (12k) in northern bc and local stores are fewer and few all the time as the walmarts of this world move in...

@gemlog Fuck Walmart, fr.

@delve yes. people deride for being so stubborn and refusing to go there, even if it's cheaper. I don't care. i'm not giving those bastards a nickle. I know they won't miss my meagre budget, but I can sleep nights not supporting gates, waltons and bezos's circle of billionaires.

@gemlog Honestly, good for you. I hate going to Walmart as well. I always prefer local when it's available.

[reposted here to maintain the thread at @delve's request] we use biblio.com a lot, too. similar to alibris and a lot of the same bookshops & resellers sell through them, as well

@delve For audiobooks, check out www.libro.fm. They even have relationships with some local bookstores, so your local bookstore will get a kickback.
