Yay!! We love Independent Bookstore Day, a day when we can celebrate YOU, our loyal customers, and when you can share your love of indie bookstores. While we can't celebrate in the same way as in past years -- with cupcakes (eating cupcakes with a mask on is just so not happening) and our spinning lottery wheel of joy (too much touching of things) -- we CAN still celebrate you and us and books and authors. We invite you to join us, whether in the store or online.
We will be offering a 15% discount on all purchases, online or in the store, on that day (except for the Indie Exclusive items and gift certificates). Use the code LoveIndieBookstores in the coupon code box online to get the discount; this code will be good only for orders placed and completed by the customer online on Saturday, April 24th (all day). You won't need the code to get the discount in the store. As with online purchases, the discount does not apply to IBD Exclusives or to gift certificates.
Any purchase in the store of $75 or more will earn you a super-cool Independent Bookstore Day exclusive book bag. Woot Woot!! Purchases of any amount in the store will earn you a free goodie bag. Surprise!
We have special indie exclusives made just for Independent Bookstore Day, including Black Wing Pencils and special signed editions. Click here to see all of those. These items cannot be purchased until April 24th.
In the morning we will start the day with an online Book Chat at 9 am. Here is the link to register for that chat or to join it in progress. We will post it to our YouTube page afterward in case you miss the live chat.
Throughout the day we will be posting video clips on our social media and on our YouTube channel of staff members reading some of their favorite poems and also recommending some recent favorite reads.
We will also be posting some musical interludes throughout the day by our talented bookseller and musician, Chris Miller.
Libro.FM is offering a free audiobook (from a selection of books) to anyone who spends $15 or more at Broadway Books between April 24th & 26th. Click here to see the books and learn more.
Nationally, there will be a variety of virtual events with authors that you can attend, including a chat with Glennon Doyle, this year's Indie Bookstore Day Author Ambassador. Read all about those at this link.
