It’s Saturday 9th October, so we’re saying Happy Bookshop Day!
Do you know about Bookshop Day? It’s an annual national event run by the Bookseller’s Association and it’s all about celebrating high street bookshops large and small. We all love bookshops for all sorts of reasons: we love browsing; we love pottering about and discovering new ideas and new worlds; we love having a chat about the latest new read; we love sitting quietly and musing on the infinite; or we just love the smell of books. There are millions of reasons to celebrate all that bookshops have always given us and continue to give us.
Here at CUP Bookshop we are celebrating in our own way with a special discount on all our books for one day only, free tote bags, and a general bubbly feeling, but bookshops across the land are all doing their own things too. Why not pop out, find your local bookmonger, shop safely, and see what’s going on?
You can find out more about #BookshopDay and local events here: https://www.booksaremybag.com/BookshopDay/About or by following @booksaremybag and the hashtag on social media.
Here’s a little video about our shop and what bookselling means to us: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jRhZhvi7HHM&t=2s
