Here’s the info:

“Books Are My Bag is the biggest ever campaign for bookshops and it launches with the Big Bookshop Party on Saturday 14th September. That’s when you can go and visit your favourite bookshop, join in their party, buy your books, and bag the coolest tote bag ever – the bright orange Books Are My Bag tote! Show your love of books by visiting your local bookshop, the best place to connect with books, where you can see them, smell and touch them, talk about them with people who care as much as you do… There is nothing quite like a bookshop, and we want to share the love by inviting you to visit your local bookshop, taking a photo of yourself and then telling us WHY it’s your favourite bookshop. You could win your own bespoke bookmark, featuring your comment and photo, to be given out by your favourite shop!”

Oh how jealous I am! How I wish I could take part!

Although we don’t have such a cool event here in the US, that shouldn’t stop us or anywhere else in the world from supporting their local bookstore on the 14th! 

Happy book hunting!
