While I love the idea of Bookshop.org, I just made an order. At the end it said I raised $7.50 for local bookstores.
I would have saved nearly $30 if I had bought the same books on Amazon, and I could have given a book store $15 and still saved $15.
This does not appear to be a sustainable business model.
