    Recently I contacted you about alternatives to Amazon, AbeBooks etc. I
    have since found another extremely good bookshop, particularly for books
    which might appeal to EC readers.

    They're in Liverpool and it's called New from Nowhere; their leaflet
    states, "We are a registered not-for-profit community business
    established 1974. A women's co-operative committed to social change."

    They seem to fit in with EC's philosophy and their service is excellent,
    even delivering here to the wild west of Ireland. Visit

    I have no connection with this co-operative other than being a happy
    customer of theirs and urge readers to give them a try.

    Hi David,

    Thank you for your suggestion. Yes we have been good friends with News from Nowhere for a while.

    This is from our website,

    'Liverpool’s radical bookshop News from Nowhere was a recommended alternative on Ethical Consumer’s website for buying books online when we launched the boycott. As a result they had their best Christmas for many years with sales rising by 8%. So although Amazon might not be too worried yet, we’re already having an impact by turning round the fortunes of some struggling local retailers.

    Which is amazing news.

    Lets keep boycotting Amazon and supporting independent bookshops.

    Kind regards,
