SHOP SEATTLE: May 2 is Independent Bookstore Day

I’m steadfast against e-readers. There’s just something about thumbing through the pages of a new book that I’m not willing to give up. I’ll sometimes spend hours (plural) camped out in a bookstore searching for the perfect mood-matching tome.

On Saturday, May 2, join 17 Seattle-area participating stores for Independent Bookstore Day. What started as a celebration of California indie bookstores last year has expanded to include over 350 stores nationwide.

Thanks to the #SEABookstoreDay Facebook page for putting together the roundup of our region’s spots.

I know I’m looking forward to chatting with the folks at Queen Anne Book Company to hear their latest recommendations, and reading book jacket after book jacket in the Top 10 section.
