We're excited for an easy, app-based alternative for ebooks. We still prefer paper, but we want to have options for you across all platforms. Let us know what you think!

To make it work, first click the red IndiePledge banner on the Nantucket Bookworks Zola page.

You'll see that the first ebook we're featuring is the wonderful novel The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry by Gabrielle Zevin.

You'll see us promoting this book all season online and in the bookstore.

The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry

Set on an island off the coast of Cape Cod, accessible by boat from Hyannis,The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry is one of the most charming, instantly beloved books to come along in a long while.

Gabrielle Zevin has written a charming tale based on the curdmudgeonly bookseller of and independent shop called Island Books. (Clearly this resonates with yours truly!) It should be the big hit of the summer and I do hope you'll give it a try.

As with all the books we handsell, it comes with a money-back guarantee if you don't like it. Order in multiples for all your spring gift needs, people will thank you! 

Happy Reading!
