Purchasing Our Book Recommendations

We’d love it if you took the time to find out your local independent bookshop or seller. Give them a ring and ask if they have the book you’re after. If not ask them to order it in – they are ordering books every day.

If you don’t have a local independent book shop and only have a Waterstones or WHSmith near you (both of which are owned by the same global company based in the US) please click on the book of your choice which will direct you to Amazon. Our affiliate links raise money for Joinavision and means a little less goes to a large globalist corporation.

We would always rather you support your closest independent bookshop but also accept this isn’t possible for everyone. The most important thing is that you support the authors of these incredible books as they are the people who should, but don’t, benefit most from every purchase.

Until there’s another way we will use Amazon as a means to support inspiring authors aswell as ensuring any money raised goes to good causes. Rest assured we won’t be spending any of it on satellites orbiting our beautiful planet!
