Independent Book Stores Google Map

Indie Store Finder

The American Booksellers Association's website IndieBound is using Google Maps as the medium for an independent book store locator. The store locator is very simple to use, just enter your zip code and press search.

The results of your search are shown on a Google Map. It is possible to refine the search by the number of miles you wish to search and by the number of results you wish to see on the map. It is also possible to search for other types of independent stores, not just book sellers.

The map markers contain information about the store, including opening hours and affiliations. Where stores have websites a link is also provided.
