Come Celebrate Independent Bookstore Day!

Independent Bookstore Day is a celebration of books, readers, and indie bookselling. We’ll have limited edition Independent Bookstore Day collectible merchandise, and all the amenities you normally cherish for a day of browsing serenity, with a splash of festivity.     

“Consumers control the marketplace by deciding where to spend their money. If what a bookstore offers matters to you, then shop at a bookstore. If you feel that the experience of reading a book is valuable, then read the book. This is how we change the world: we grab hold of it. We change ourselves.” ―Ann Patchett
