Independent Bookstore Day

For the fourth year, independent bookstores across the country will be celebrating the holiday we invented for ourselves: Independent Bookstore Day. We'll be featuring activities, contests, and exclusive Bookstore Day items all day long, and, as usual, we're teaming together with eighteen other Seattle-area indies for the Passport Challenge. Get your Bookstore Day passport map stamped at three or more stores that day and we'll give you a 30% coupon, good for one time at any participating store. Visit all 19 stores in the day (which, astoundingly, 320 intrepid readers did last year!), and you'll become a Grand Champion, with a crown and a 25% off discount card, good at all participating stores for the following year. Find out more at our Facebook page and at It's one of our favorite days of the year!
