Independent Bookstore Day Spirit Week continued yesterday with #OnWednesdaysWeWearBookstoreShirts. Among the booksellers participating:
|The Novel Neighbor: "We've never met an indie we didn't love."|
The Novel Neighbor, St. Louis, Mo.: "We are celebrating our love of fellow Indie Bookstores!... Today, we're sharing love for some other indie bookstores near and far! We've never met an indie we didn't love--here are just a few sweatshirts, T-shirts, and bags we've picked up over our travels! Wherever you are, shopping indie puts money back into your local economy, brings authors to your community, and supports your friendly local booksellers (who know ALL the good books). Wear an indie bookstore shirt and tag us--we'll reshare! What's another indie that YOU love?! Let us know.
Bards Alley Bookshop, Vienna, Va.: "It's THREE DAYS until Indie Bookstore Day, and we're wearing our bookstore shirts this Wednesday for spirit week!"
