Independent bookstores hail new sales hub

From Nine To Noon, 9:20 am on 6 October 2023

In what's being hailed as a first for the English-speaking world - the country's independent bookstores will now have a collective website for sales.

BookHub launches tomorrow, and it'll allow readers to buy from the 70 or so independent booksellers around the country.

Booksellers Aotearoa says it'll be a major disrupter to online bookselling - pushing back against the giant global retailers.

Joining Kathryn is Tony Moores, Booksellers Aotearoa New Zealand's project manager for BookHub and Renee Rowland from The Twizel Bookshop.
