I know you've all been waiting in breathless anticipation for more information on how to get involved with with National Independent Bookseller, and here it is.
To help celebrate this month devoted to indie bookstores, we thought it would be fun to have people nominate their favorite independent bookseller for the National Independent Bookseller of the Year Award.
We all have stories of that special bookseller who introduced us to our favorite author, or put that amazing book in our child's hand that got them to read, or who was instrumental in promoting our book with their customers--whatever the reason, tell us about it!
In the comments below, in a 100 words or less, tell us why your favorite independent bookseller should be bookseller of the year.
The entries will be judged by an independent panel, and the winning bookseller will have their bio and picture posted, and they'll win dinner at their favorite restaurant!
