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. 

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.



Tote bags ARE NOW AVAILABLE TO PURCHASE IN-STORE or here on our website.
Order your very own Independent Bookstore Day merch here! 

Here's your official sneak peek at the exclusive items you've been waiting for! Remember: these items are only available at independent bookstores like The Book Seller, and never sold online.
