Group Description

At we're all very excited about Independent Booksellers Week, which runs from 14 June to 21 June 2010.

This year we're starting off a group to add to pictures and locations to our bookshop database.

So if you've got a picture of a favourite bookshop, this is the place to put it. Tell us where it is, and a little bit about what sets it apart from the crowd, and we'll never be at a loose end again.

You'll need to make sure it's geotagged before you add it to the group - take a look over here if that doesn't make sense. You'll also need to check that your geoprivacy settings for these pictures are on "public" - otherwise they won't appear on the map.

We've pulled together some of our favourites on - you can take a look at our gallery on the site - and we may publish some of them in the newspaper version of the Guardian as well. By posting your pictures in this group you agree to let this happen (though copyright remains with you at all times, and you will be credited).

Thanks for joining in.

Group Rules

Some important things - please read this before you join the Favourite bookshops group.

1 This group is only for pictures of people's favourite bookshops. Unfortunately, this means that any pics which aren't bookshops will be removed from the pool.

2 Keep it constructive. This is a place to put pictures of bookshops you'd recommend to your friends and family, so please try and keep messages appropriate for a diverse audience. Avoid being very offensive if you can help it. There are loads of other places on Flickr (including your own photo stream!) where you can put photos of all sorts of stuff that may upset or offend people, but this group is not for them. Sorry.

3 Keep it legal. Please don't upload any material which you don't own the copyright to. It's simplest if you only add pictures you've taken yourself, and if you want to take a picture inside the shop - and why wouldn't you? - then ask permission first.

1. Take a picture of your favourite bookshop, or find one you already have - maybe even one you already have on Flickr ...
2. Add it to the group
3. Tell us where it is, and why it's great

We'll feature some of our favourites on

By joining this group you acknowledge that you have understood and agreed to abide by the above.
