As social distancing measures continue to take effect in the face of COVID-19, many book-loving Australians are using their new free time to tackle their reading lists. Meanwhile, bookstores have taken to social media to share their commitment to keeping our community safe, with hygiene measures and increased delivery services.
Stella believes booksellers are a lynchpin of our literary community. We commend Australian bookstores for their public safety efforts during the current pandemic and acknowledge the uncertainty it’s causing for their business.
We strongly encourage all booklovers to support your local bookstore via online orders and delivery services. Buy for yourself, buy gifts – or gift cards – for your friends and family. You can do so at any of the stores listed below. You can also email us at firstname.lastname@example.org the details of other bookstores to include on this list!
