Free App: Indie Bookstore Finder


Love to read?  Like to hang out in bookstores?  Planning a road trip or plan to fly to a big city?  You can combine all these pleasures, planning visits to independent bookstores as your travel destinations!

Use a new app, which is called the “Indie Bookstore Finder” to discover Independent Bookstores around the country.  More than 400 stores at the launch, with more to come.  Many of the stores are having special events, author appearances and books you can only find from your independent book store.

App for Literary Aficionados and Travelers:
Updated: May 02, 2016 – Version: 2.1.1

iPhone or Android 

“Independent bookstores make a difference in your community, more than buying from big box stores or that major online book retailer that shall not be named.  Your local shop owners support local causes, spend their money in the same community you do, or in the community you’re visiting.

A handy “Near Me” map with a slider allows you to filter the amount of locations shown. Now you can choose how many nearby locations you’d like to see!

This new “Indie Bookstore Finder” is a collaboration between GoLocalApps
and City Book Review.  They started their business doing book reviews and created an app back in 2009 to promote book reviews for children.  Since that app, they spun off the app development business into GoLocalApps and now are back working together again.

Best of all: It’s Free! It might become avid readers’ best friend : ) Happy Travels!
