For many years Word Power has worked hard to maintain an online bookstore that would provide an alternative to Amazon for readers who wanted to shop ethically but were not able to visit the bookshop in Edinburgh. Though it might not have seemed it, this was a huge and costly undertaking for a small independent. Reluctantly we have had to accept that we simply don’t have the capacity to carry this on at the moment.
We will try to keep a range of the books we stock on the Lighthouse’ website, showcasing smaller publishers and lesser known authors and offering a window into our physical space.
If you’re keen to continue supporting radical independent bookshops online, we’d recommend visiting the brilliantly stocked website of our friends at News From Nowhere, or you can use The Hive and nominate us as your local bookshop.
