Has a special bookseller helped you discover a book you loved? Do you find yourself smiling extra-big after you visit with the staff at your local bookstore? Did someone at an independent bookstore help you find the perfect gift? When you go to your bookstore, do you enjoy sharing what you’ve been reading and hearing what the folks who work there have been reading?
You can nominate as many booksellers as you want for the James Patterson Holiday Bookstore Bonus Program! Bestselling author James Patterson is giving $250,000 to 500 independent booksellers (that’s $500 each!), and he picks the recipients from nominations submitted through this form.
You don’t need to know how long the bookseller has been in their role, and you can use the store’s email address as their email address if you don’t know how to reach that bookseller directly. You might want to spend some time with your favorite store’s staff picks pages to decide who you want to nominate! You might also enjoy browsing the Face Outs on our site to see which books you love have been recommended by booksellers around the region.
Nominations are due by November 16, 2022. Thank you for celebrating booksellers!
