Independent Bookstore Day (IBD) has been rescheduled for Saturday, August 29. Although there will be no bookstore crawl in the Seattle/West Sound area this year, we will celebrate with a lively combination of in-store and online events and exclusives. We will also be launching our month-long celebration of Eagle Harbor Book Company's 50th anniversary!!! Watch our Facebook and Instagram pages for more information!
And since baseball season has finally arrived, here's a message from IBD's 2020 Literary Ambassador, Sean Doolittle - Relief Pitcher for the reigning World Series Champs, the Washington Nationals. "I love indie bookstores because I love the safe and inclusive spaces that they create for the people in their communities. They're more than just places to shop. They are community centers that promote and host important events about issues that impact their communities."
And don't forget to check out what our partner Libro.fm has to offer! You can earn a free audiobook by recording a video!
During the month of August, Libro.fm is inviting bookstore supporters to share why local bookstores and Libro.fm audiobooks are significant to them in a short video. When customers submit a video, they’ll receive one free audiobook credit as thanks. Libro.fm will also share a selection of these videos on our blog on August 29th, and the featured creators will each receive their choice of a $100 gift card to their local bookstore (purchased by Libro.fm) or a 12-month Libro.fm audiobook membership through their local bookstore. Yay!
