Yesterday, we also published a report on why many independent publishers are giving up Amazon to use Bookshop, a new service that shares 75% of book sales with publishers (far more than Amazon). We also announced this week that Hyperallergic will now use Bookshop links whenever possible going forward.
Consequently, we’re happy to share that we will now be working with Bookshop to support our colleagues at small presses, wherever possible. This decision comes in response to an initiative led by Ugly Duckling Presse, a nonprofit publisher of poetry, translation, experimental nonfiction, and artist books based in Gowanus, Brooklyn. Together with a group of over 30 small presses, they recently issued a collective call for independent media outlets and book reviewers to “rethink [their] links” and help mitigate the damaging effects of linking book pages to tech behemoths like Amazon.
