Welcome to The Gentle Bookshop
Thank you for taking the time to learn about The Gentle Bookshop. First of all, welcome :)
How many times have you walked into a bookstore or a library to find English books, read a few pages and became thrilled to discover that the protagonist was bipoc/queer? Only to find out that the writer wasn't bipoc/ queer and profiting from the experiences of the community.
Here at The Gentle Bookshop, we have done the tedious work for you, researching and ensuring that all the books written were actually by bipoc/ queer authors.
The Gentle Bookshop was founded by a poc and queer person herself (pronouns: she/her), hoping to create a space to shop and read at ease, knowing you’re divulging in a wonderful book to educate yourself, others, or simply to curl up on the couch and enjoy a fiction novel.
Again, thank you for making the effort to steer away from the evil bookstore Amazon and thank you for supporting our small local business. Happy reading! :)
*Note - As a small business, we unfortunately aren’t able to read all the books to ensure that trigger warnings are written for you. We do have a description of each book, but please take the time to read reviews and research to make sure you aren’t purchasing a book that may be triggering for you.
