A Really Comprehensive List of Where to Buy the Book

Kind of a boring post, but probably a useful one. It’s basically what it says in the title: a list of all the places you can currently buy Weeks and Days. I did still feel compelled to write an intro, but if you don’t want to read it, jump straight to hardcover or ebook retailers.

On the main page for Weeks and Days, the “order” button links directly to Gosson Press, my publisher’s, webstore. I don’t like to talk about money, but I’ll be very blunt now and say that I’ve linked there because I make significantly more money from books purchased through the publisher versus books purchased anywhere else. However, I recognize that there are reasons you may not want or be able to order from Gosson. The shipping cost, especially if you live outside the United States, is a big one.

Frankly, I’d much rather make a bit less money if it means more people are reading the book. So here’s a list of all the places (I know of) that you can buy Weeks and Days. (Side note–if you go directly to one of these retailers rather than following the links here, you’ll have a lot better luck with your search results if you type in “S.E. Phinney” (don’t forget the periods after my initials) than you will typing “Weeks and Days.”)

I’ll do my best to update this list as (if?) new retailers are added. It’s current as of May 22, 2016.

Hardcover

Gosson Press – My publisher. As I said before, I get a much better royalty rate from books purchased here. Also, unless you run into me in real life, buying your copy through Gosson is currently the only way to get an autographed book.

IndieBound – If you’re not familiar with IndieBound, it’s a consortium of independent booksellers across the United States. Weeks and Days is available for sale in the IndieBound webshop, and there are also listings for a number of independent bookstores that may or may not carry it–maybe there’s one close to you. Search by zip code or by store name.

Powell’s – You can purchase Weeks and Days through the Powell’s website, though it’s not currently in any of their physical stores.

Independent Bookstores – As far as I know, Powell’s is the only independent bookstore “stocking” the book. However, your local bookstore should be able to order it in for you. For your and their convenience, the hardcover ISBN is 978-0-9970489-0-2.

Amazon – Yes, my book is on Amazon. It appears on all the international Amazon sites that I’ve checked except Australia and the Netherlands. (The Kindle version is available on these countries’ sites, however.) If you’re outside the U.S. and aren’t able to find a local bookstore to purchase from, this is probably your best bet.

AbeBooks – AbeBooks has a lot of the same seller listings as Amazon, and a lot of them are located internationally, so this is another good place to look if you live outside the United States.

Barnes & Noble – The book is available on their website. As far as I know, it’s not in any of their physical stores. So, you could order it online for store pickup, or you could go in and have them order in a copy, but don’t expect to see it on the shelves. (Yet.)

Ebook

Smashwords My preferred ebook retailer. Smashwords offers just about every format there is (including, yes, Kindle/mobi–as well as a couple of other formats that I don’t even think they make devices for anymore), all DRM-free.
Formats: epub, Kindle/mobi, PDF, more…

Barnes and Noble – Also stocks the hardcover.
Format: Nook book

Kobo – This will link you to the Kobo webshop, but I’m told you can also access the store directly through your device.
Format: epub

iBooks – iBooks is really just the name for the part of the iTunes store that sells books. This link will open in your web browser, but I assume that if you have Apple software on your device, you can get there directly, too.
Format: epub (I think? I don’t know anything about Apple stuff, so correct me if I’m wrong.)

Amazon – Also stocks the hardcover (except in Australia and the Netherlands, where it’s ebook only).
Format: Kindle/mobi

Inktera – Formerly known as Page Foundry.
Format: epub

Blio – Here, too.
Format: epub, Blio ebook
