If you’re in dire need of something new to read while sheltering-in-place, Intown’s independent bookshops are open for online sales, curbside pick-up, and – in some cases – free delivery to your door. Shopping locally for your books will help keep these stores alive during the coronavirus pandemic.
A Cappella Books
The store has its full inventory online and will make contactless deliveries to customers’ doors within a 10-mile radius of the Inman Park location. If you live further than 10 miles, don’t worry: A Cappella is shipping orders by mail, too. Visit acappellabooks.com.
The East Atlanta Village shop is also offering contactless delivery to Intown residents from their stock of new and used books. If you don’t see what you want, the shop will also order books from the publisher on request, although delivery will be delayed for those titles. Visit bookishatl.com.

The kids’ bookshop is offering web shopping and contactless porch pick-up at their Decatur store. Visit braveandkindbooks.com.
