To raise £5000. Helping us bring a book shop onto the High Street, filling an empty unit and providing a community resource to Leatherhead

by BookPotato shop in Leatherhead, England, United Kingdom

BookPotato.org officially launched in January 2019. BookPotato is different from Waterstones and Amazon; we specialise in helping the indie (independent) author to market and sell their books whilst also selling well established titles.

Authors submit their books for FREE (just like some other self publishing platforms) we then support each book on our site, and physical book shop, with additional marketing suggestions and opportunities (unlike any other self publishing platform).

Due to the recent closure of Bartons Books in Leatherhead we have been mobilised to act quickly and retain a physical presence on the high street. We wanted to work along side a bricks and mortar shop to offer another alternative for some of our indie authors, however, in light of Bartons Books closure, we wanted to step up and bring BookPotato as a new, fun and exciting place for all book lovers, families and people of Leatherhead to visit and take advantage of our facilities. Reading areas, large selection of books, including second hand books and a 'swap shop' as well as many more secrets that we will reveal in time. 

Books are a physical thing, it helps to hold and read a few pages to find out if you like it and if you would want to continue reading. This is what we want to offer.
