On Saturday 7 October, book-lovers around the country are invited to celebrate Love Your Bookshop Day.
Love Your Bookshop and the Love Your Bookshop Day celebrations are initiatives of the BookPeople created to celebrate bookshops across the country and highlight what makes local bookshops great.
Love Your Bookshop Day 2023 celebrates the unique role our local bookshops play in helping to expand our worlds by ‘Giving the Gift of Imagination’.
As BookPeople say about the day: “Bookshops offer us much more than a book. They present limitless portals to different worlds. Visiting a bookshop provides us all with an opportunity to be transported to wherever we want to go, maybe it’s climbing a multi-storey treehouse to find the marshmallow machine, a trip to the outer edges of the universe exploring Arrakis, or even back in time to watch the first pages of the Oxford dictionary come together. Wherever we want to go, we can get there via our local bookshop.”
