CityShelf Lets New Yorkers Buy Books from Local Bookstores With Ease

NYC bibliophiles rejoice, for there’s a new way to buy books in town. Meet CityShelf, a project launched in December that’s “a combined search tool for eight of New York’s indie bookstores.

It’s kind of like Amazon, only it’s specifically for books, and it comes without the controversy surrounding the major retailer’s author compensation practices. Not to mention, you’re buying local, which ignites that, “I’m contributing to society,” warm and fuzzy feeling.

Cityshelf’s goal is to augment sales for indie book sellers and make books more accessible to New Yorkers. It’s currently an app for smart phones, and founder Ben Purkert says he’d like for it to continue growing by word of mouth.
