If you like to support independent bookstores, then you're in luck! Today is Independent Bookstore Day!!!
This event was rescheduled from April to August 29th because of COVID-19. Not only are many local independent stores celebrating, but a lot of events are happening virtually. You can visit the event page to find all the different ways to celebrate the day.
My plan was to attend a few virtual author discussions today, but due to work stress I only got 3 hours of sleep last night. I don't think I'll be able to focus much if I try attending a Zoom event. So instead, I plan to visit my local independent bookstore's websites and support them by buying a couple of books.
Here are some of my local independent bookstores that I enjoy visiting:
- Vroman's Bookstore
- Cafe Con Libros (I haven't been to this one but I heard so many great things about it)
- Bel Canto
By the way, Book Riot is having a giveaway to support the event. Check it out!
