‘BOOKS ARE MY BAG’ PARTY! Sept 14th
5.30pm – 7.30pm (or longer if we feel like it!)
Celebrate bookshops with wine, free books, free bag, and discounts!
When you buy a book from a bookshop, you get a possession that you may well value for the rest of your life. You’ll have enjoyed the pleasure of browsing around a whole host of other books before making your choice. You may well have got advice from someone who may love books even more than you do, the bookseller on the other side of the counter. You will have partaken in a process that is a vital part of our culture, our community and our High Street.
BOOKS ARE MY BAG is a nationwide campaign to celebrate bookshops. This collaboration between publishers, bookshops and authors is the biggest ever promotion of bookshops – various events will be held nationwide on September 14th.
JOIN US! We would love our customers to pop in to ‘pick up a proof’ (free pre-publication copies of a book), partake in a bookswap (bring along a book, take another home),munch on a cake and sip some wine! Plus – there will be 10% off all books in stock (new and second hand) and all books in our sale bay will be £1!
Customers will be the first to receive the 2013 Christmas catalogue, and the Hungerford Literary Festival programme (if we can get them printed in time!) in a free ‘Books are my Bag’ canvas bag.
So, please come along to an evening to celebrate your independent bookshop! We’d love to see you!
