Nov. 7th is National Bookstore Day
Hundreds, if not thousands, of bookstores will be celebrating the first National Bookstore Day on Nov. 7, 2009. This is a day devoted to celebrating bookselling and the vibrant culture of bookstores. You have a bookstore in your community, and Saturday, Nov. 7, is your day to stop in and say Hello.
At The Book Stall of Chestnut Court web site, you can read an essay written by Alan Cheuse, author of To Catch the Lightning, and a favorite book of mine: A Trance After Breakfast, which I reviewed online here.
I'm fortunate to have a speaking opportunity in Manzanita, Oregon that day, and will be selling books at my sister's shop, Ekhani Books after the workshop. Wherever you are that day, please stop in a local book shop, celebrate them, and make a purchase.
