Since the beginning of the bookshop crawl we've hosted all the information as part of our website at Ninja Book Box. This can be confusing and means people sometimes end up signed up to newsletters about things they aren't interested in!
As part of our aim to grow the London and Summer bookshop crawls into an established part of the literary calendar, we are looking to buy hosting for a dedicated bookshop crawl website and we need your help to afford it.
I run the annual non-profit London Bookshop Crawl to support independent bookshops and bring book lovers together. Bookshops across greater London take part and we want to keep it free for them to participate while also being able to pay ourselves for 8+ months of work.
We also run roaming events around the country through the spring and summer of each year, which we are planning to expand and bring the bookshop crawl to a city near you very soon!
During the pandemic we took our bookshop crawl online for the first ever Virtual Bookshop Crawl, including bookshops from around the world, and taking place across social media, and the London Bookshop Crawl Online was a big success in February 2021. We will be running more virtual events as well as producing content on Youtube throughout the year. We really appreciate your support!
