A Final Celebratory Salute
Thursday, May 31st marks the last day of our National Independent Booksellers Month 2007-- we hope you'll join us in our final fiery fling! Many of you have posted a link to NIBM on your blog or website, and if you'll send us a quick message with the URL, we will enter you in our contest for the $25.00 Book Sense gift certificate. Or, if you've visited an Indie this month, please let us know the name of the bookstore you visited. We want you in our raffle as well.
And, tick-tick-tick--you've still got a number of hours left on 5/31 to send us one or more entries for our contest The Ten Best Reasons to Shop at Independents. We've had some great entries! We'd love to hear yours as well.
We will be posting our winners over the weekend, so do make sure to send us your info and come on back.
Robin and I planned a four day Southern California Indie Tour as part of the month's celebration. Unbeknownest to us, we both were about to suffer an unscheduled visit by a Series of Unfortuitous Events that rendered us both non-ambulatory and a smidge insane. We did, however, did get to spend hours last Sunday in the company of two luffly booksellers as consolation. We are saving our maps, contact sheets and intinerarys for our May 2008 celebration when we will put pedal to the metal. Perhaps by then we will be dripping in the proceeds from juicy new book contracts, and we'll be able to travel all month all over the country. A girl can hope, for god's sake!
We want to thank you all for joining us this month, and for the appreciation, support and goodwill you've put out on behalf of our booksellers. And, if you haven't yet had a chance to thank them, and no time to visit today, take a quick trip to Book Sense website and buy a book.
May your generosity come back to you a hundred-fold. And, do keep shopping!
