Independent Bookstore Day!

Event organized by BookHampton

Get Directions

#var:page_name# cover

Independent Bookstore Day (IBD) is a celebration of books, readers, and indie bookselling!

Independent bookstores are not just stores, they’re community centers and local anchors run by passionate readers. They are entire universes of ideas that contain the possibility of real serendipity. They are lively performance spaces and quiet places where aimless perusal is a day well spent.

In a world of tweets and algorithms and pageless digital downloads, bookstores are not a dying anachronism. They are living, breathing organisms that continue to grow and expand. In fact, there are more of them this year than there were last year.

BookHampton will celebrate all day and will offer exclusive merchandise created especially for Independent Bookstore Day by major publishers and authors.

Since its inception in 2014, more than 120 authors have demonstrated their support for independent bookstores by donating work for Bookstore Day. These limited edition, unique items will be available only on April 28. Not before. Not online. And not in chain stores!

Raffle: Sign up for our email newsletters and you’ll be entered into a raffle for a $25.00 gift card!

FIVE FREE Audiobooks + TWO FREE samplers, courtesy of Libro.fm!
