Saturday is Independent Bookstore Day!

Book lovers vote with your feet (and your dollars) this Saturday, May 2nd.

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.

This Saturday they’ll also be filled with authors and booky bling you can only acquire through an Indie. (Personally, I’m hoping to score a Roz Chast book bag!)

In a world of tweets and algorithms and pageless digital downloads, bookstores are not an anachronism.  They are living, breathing organisms–a real-world respite from your living room and the small screen in front of your face. As Green Apple Books once so memorably put it: “So put some pants on and get out of the house!”
