What are your plans for Independent Bookstore Day?
Saturday, April 27, 2019 will be the fifth annual Independent Bookstore Day. IBD celebrates independent bookstores around the country.
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.
Bookstores might have snacks or special guests. They might carry some of the exclusive, in-store-only Independent Bookstore merchandise. They’ll definitely have a smile and tons of great reading recommendations for every guest.
