Independent Book Store Day! THIRD Annual!


Welcome to one of our favorite holidays of the year!  

Join us, and the rest of the world, really (here's the link to what's happening EVERYWHERE.

Come by this day for cake (from Larson's!) fun photo ops, and some swell non-book merch developed just for this!

Here in Seattle, 22 independent bookstores have banded together to offer our customers, THE BEST INDIE SHOP SUPPORTERS IN THE WORLD, the chance to stop by as many of our stores on IBSD as possible! Here are all the details:

The Indie Bookstore Challenge

For the truly dedicated, the Indie Bookstore Challenge is a book-lover’s dream. Visit 22 participating local stores on April 29, get your passport stamped at each store, and receive 25 percent off at all participating stores for a year. In 2015, 42 valiant souls made the trek, and last year that number grew to 120 bookstore champions. Booksellers are expecting the total to increase this year as word spreads.

Those looking for an easier challenge can get their passports stamped at three or more stores and be entered to win bookstore gift cards.

Participating stores

Ada’s Technical Books, Book Larder, BookTree Kirkland, Eagle Harbor Books, Edmonds Bookshop, Elliott Bay Book Co., Fantagraphics Books, Island Books, Magnolia’s Bookstore, The Neverending Bookshop, Open Books: A Poem Emporium, Phinney Books, Queen Anne Book Company, Seattle Mystery Bookshop, Secret Garden Books, The Traveler, and all locations of Liberty Bay Books, Third Place Books, and the University Book Store.

Prizes for those who visit the most!
