INDEPENDENT BOOKSTORE DAY - 2015

CELEBRATE WITH US!!
INDEPENDENT BOOKSTORE DAY
IS SATURDAY, MAY 2, 2015
WHAT is Independent Bookstore Day and WHY is Independent Bookstore Day? 
It's a day to celebrate the importance of Independent Bookstores to our communities. Not to toot our own horns, but this is the way IBD Celebrates, as outlined by the OFFICIAL IBD SITE:
 
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.
Indie bookstores, whether dusty and labyrinthine or clean and well-lighted, are not just stores, they are solutions. They hold the key to your love life, your career, and your passions. Walking the aisles of a good bookstore means stumbling upon a novel from India that expands your heart. It’s encountering an art book that changes the direction of your life. It’s the joy of having a perfect stranger steer you toward the perfect book.
In a world of tweets and algorithms and pageless digital downloads, bookstores are not a dying anachronism.  They are living, breathing organisms that continue to grow and expand. In fact, there are more of them this year than there were last year. And they are at your service.
We will have a few fun LIMITED EDITION art and books specially created for IBD 2015. Check 'em out:
