Accordion Revolution: Buying the Book

December 5, 2019

Purchasing Options (for Every Reader)

(If you leave reviews at any of these shops and libraries it really helps!)

I personally send out signed/custom-stamped copies of Accordion Revolution, along with a bonus ebook and stickers and pretty illustrated postcard/bookmark/fliers.

Cost is a bit more with postage but supports the author (me) more than other purchasing methods. Also available: flaming accordion pins and amusing badges.

Convenient/affordable ebook!

ePub (everywhere but kindle)

Kindle (Amazon)

(Many shops below carry the ebook too.)

Ordering the Real Book:

In the U.S. I recommend: is a perhaps the best new way to order books with profits going to local bookshops in the United States. Their companion site will also recommend local independant bookstores where you can get the book directly. Pretty cool.

Powell’s Books in Portland, Oregon has online service to your door. connects you with a network of local booksellers.

Barnes & Nobel is a popular Amazon subsidiary that lets you leave reviews of what you thought of the book.

If you’re interested, I created an Accordion History bibliography on Goodreads that includes many of the books used while writing Accordion Revolution

Search through various options on which include Amazon’s online Monopoly if there’s no alternative.

Internationally (Let us know your favorites): is a global alternative to Amazon. They’ll post to anywhere. Pretty cool.

In Canada:

In Europe:

In Northern Europe and much of the world: Adlibris,com

In the Netherlands and Belgium folks have ordered from:

In the UK: (UK local bookstore network. Says “Out of Stock” but they inform me that means it’s not in shops, but they’ll mail it to you right away. (an Amazon subsidiary.)

In Australia: has the book.

Including: See You At the Hall, Puro Conjunto, The Quest of the Folk, Musica Norteña, The Accordion in the Americas, Musicians Traditionnels du Québec

Request that Your Local Libraries Order Copies!

Finally, I encourage you to Request the Book at your local and academic Libraries. Most Libraries appreciate requests and have easy online request forms. Simply search online for “Request a book, your library name,” and fill it out.

Suggesting books is a wonderful way to support authors and get books in the hands of more readers:

You’ll probably only need a few of the following:
