All day long, we, and almost two dozen of our fellow Seattle independent bookstores as well as hundreds of stores across the country, will be celebrating the fifth annual Independent Bookstore Day. Visit our stores for author appearances, live music, cupcakes, scavenger hunts, kids events, art tables, readings, contests, and other fun stuff, along with exclusive books and literary items you can only get on that day.
And in Seattle, we’ll continue our tradition of the Bookstore Passport Challenge. Get your passport stamped at three or more participating stores on Bookstore Day and receive a 30% coupon for use at any of the stores. Get your passport stamped at all 21 stores and you’ll be crowned a Bookstore Grand Champion, with a 25% discount card, good at all participating stores until Bookstore Day next year. Does visiting 21 stores in a day, from Poulsbo to Redmond to Burien to Georgetown, sound impossible? Almost 500 book lovers completed the 19-store challenge last year!
