The affiliate links on this site will send you to Bookshop, an online bookstore and benefit corporation that financially supports local and independent bookstores. When you buy from Bookshop, you support brick-and-mortar stores that serve as community hubs, all while having the convenience of shopping online.
You have the option to select a specific bookstore on their map to receive the profits from your order. If you don’t select one, then the proceeds go to an earnings pool that’s split evenly and distributed to all of the bookstores.
As a Bookshop affiliate, Sparkles of Gold gets a commission for sales made through the links on this site. 10% of every order goes directly to independent bookstores, and 75% of all of Bookshop profits are put back into the community — supporting bookstores, writers, and various publications.
