What is #loveyourbookstore?
Love Your Bookstore is an industry-wide celebration of all brick-and-mortar bookstores across America. It's a way for book lovers of all sorts to share their love for their favorite local bookstore!
Bookstores are community centers and more than just selling books, they provide a place for people to connect with your books, your authors, and with each other. Let's create a celebration of these amazing brick-and-mortar bookstores with all book-loving partners (authors, readers, publishers, booksellers, and more!) during this holiday season and beyond.
We want YOU to join the celebration!
Here are ways you can get involved
Engage Your Authors
Encourage your authors to participate in the #loveyourbookstore Challenge!
1. They should visit their favorite bookstore between November 10 - 18 (they can visit more than one or more than once!)
2. While they're there, they should take a picture with a book they love or want to gift this holiday season
3. Post that picture on social media using the hashtag #loveyourbookstore
4. Then they should challenge 3 - 5 of your friends to do the #loveyourbookstore Challenge as well. Bonus points if they are authors too!
Do you have a senior executive who would be willing to be quoted in media coverage about the #loveyourbookstore Challenge? Is there someone on staff who wants to serve as a primary contact and join the Love Your Bookstore Steering Committee?
