Independent Bookstore Day 2020
Independent Bookstore Day is our favorite holiday of the year! Join us for a day of celebration and show your appreciation for independent bookstores all across the country. This year's festivites will be taking place online as well as in-store, so no matter what your schedule looks like you can still celebrate with us. Covid-19 has impacted the book industry in numerous ways, and even Bookstore Day has changed. The first big difference is that you can now purchase the exclusive items ONLINE. Items don't go on sale until August 29, so there won't be any preordering. If an item is listed as out of stock online, you can always call the store for current availability.
Why are we celebrating independent bookstores?
Independent bookstores are not just stores, they’re community centers and local anchors run by passionate readers. They are entire universes of ideas that contain the possibility of real serendipity. They are lively performance spaces and quiet places where aimless perusal is a day well spent.
In a world of tweets and algorithms and pageless digital downloads, bookstores are not a dying anachronism. They are living, breathing organisms that continue to grow and expand. In fact, there are more of them this year than there were last year. And they are at your service.
