Virtual Bookshop Crawl 

During April, May and June we ran a Virtual Bookshop Crawl on Instagram, visiting bookshops around the world and getting amazing book recommendations from them. 

The majority are now open again in some form, so if you need inspiration for where to visit or what to buy when you're there, you can find our list of Uplifting, Inspiring and Distracting Books recommended by Indie Bookshops here, and find out which bookshops we visited by checking #virtualbookshopcrawl on twitter or Instagram, or by clicking the links alongside the maps below.
