Scenic Shopping Affiliate Storefront on Bookshop.org

Scenic Shopping is partnering with Bookshop.org as an Affiliate. Bookshop.org supports independent book stores, many of which are in Scenic Shopping towns. Scenic Shopping receives a portion of each sale at the Scenic Shopping storefront on Bookshop.org. (More on this)

Scenic Shopping lists independent book stores where you can purchase books directly in person or at their website if they have one. If you are unable to do that, purchases on our Scenic Shopping storefront on bookshop.org will earn Scenic Shopping a percentage of each sale. Also, a portion of each of these bookshop.org sales goes to one of the book stores listed on the Scenic Shopping website on a rotating basis. Scenic Shopping hopes that this storefront helps you learn about books that are written by authors from Scenic Shopping towns, are set in Scenic Shopping towns, or have a close connection to Scenic Shopping towns. Dvd's for movies that are set in the towns are also listed. I hope this information will enrich your visit to Scenic Shopping towns.

Please see Bookshop.org's privacy policy and Bookshop.org's terms of use to learn more about how they process customer information. (Less on this)
