Starting Saturday, November 10, readers will share their love of bookstores by taking part in the Love Your Bookstore Challenge during the weeklong celebration of Love Your Bookstore, a new retail holiday continuing through Friday, November 16.
The founding sponsors of Love Your Bookstore are Sourcebooks, Publishers Weekly, Barnes & Noble, Books-A-Million, Penguin Random House, HarperCollins, Abrams, LitHub, Grove Atlantic, the Children’s Book Council, BookCon, and Libro.fm.
Throughout the week, readers will visit their local bookstores to take pictures of books they’re excited to gift or receive this holiday season. Photos will appear across social media with the hashtag #loveyourbookstore, which enters those who post for a chance to win bookish prizes.
Authors, readers, publishers, and bookstores can access more information and materials at www.loveyourbookstore.com.
