Tomorrow add a little lit to your weekend and celebrate National Bookstore Day by buying a book at a real-life bookstore. At a time when it’s harder than ever for brick-and-mortar booksellers to compete with the big guys (not that we don’t love them, too), Publishers Weekly has declared November 6 the first-ever National Bookstore Day, and more than 140 bookstores around the country are joining in the fun with author signings and special events, plus promos, discounts raffles and more. While you’re there, chat up your local bookseller. You never know — she might just recommend your next favorite book!
Been so long that you don’t even remember your local bookstore? Check with IndieBound for the independent bookseller nearest to you.
