Yes, it is Bookstore Romance Day! I just found out about this event last night and immediately got excited for it.
So what is it all about?
Per their website:
Bookstore Romance Day is a day designed to give independent bookstores an opportunity to celebrate Romance fiction—its books, readers, and writers—and to strengthen the relationships between bookstores and the Romance community.
This is the second year that this event is happening. The organization even has an official schedule of various online author talks. There are also other author event from independent stores that could be found on Evenbrite, which I will be attending later on today.
What's so neat is that Meg Cabot is the ambassador! She opened up the event and will be hosting a Princess Diaries watch party tomorrow.
I think this is a really neat idea to celebrate romance authors and independent bookstores. It's been a while since I've read a romance book, but this event is encouraging me to pick up a few books to read. I even joined the organization's book club.
I can't wait to listen to some fabulous authors and read their books!
