15 independent metro Detroit bookstores offering delivery and curbside pickup


It came as quite a blow to independent bookstores  — and the readers that need them — when all were forced to suspend services as part of Michigan's executive order to combat the spread of coronavirus. And then came the postponement of 2020's Independent Bookstore Day — the annual celebration of books, book lovers, and the resilient bookshop owners and their incredible collections — that was supposed to take place on Saturday, April 25. Well, one thing is true: we need books now more than ever, which is why it's important to support those shops offering curbside and delivery services in the interim. Though Independent Bookstore Day has been tentatively moved to Aug. 29, there's no time like the present to immerse yourself in words, fantasy, information, poetry, and prose.
