Best Bookstores on Tumblr

By Jason Boog Comment

Is your favorite bookstore on Tumblr? We are building a directory of all the bookstores on the social network.

Earlier this year, we opened a GalleyCat Tumblr page and published Tumblr Tips for Writers. Our bookstore list is not comprehensive–yet. Share your favorite Tumblr bookstore in the comments section and we will add it to our list.

If you are looking for more people to follow, check out our Best Indie Bookstores on Twitter list, our Best Literary Agents on Twitter directory, our Best Book Editors on Twitter list, our Best Book Publicity and Marketing Twitter Feeds directory, our Best eBook News on Twitter list, our Best Library People on Twitter directory, and our Women in Publishing Twitter List.
