This Saturday is Independent Bookstore Day! 400 bookstores across the country are celebrating, with author appearances, events, and exclusive books and art items for sale on this day only. Neil Gaiman coloring book, anyone?
And if you're in NY, don't miss the first annual Brooklyn Bookstore Crawl. Visit five or more stores for a chance to win prizes, including gift cards to some of the sponsoring stores and free books. Silent Book Club will be crawlin! Let us know if you'll be in the neighborhood so we can swap swag and hi-fives.
Give it up for indie bookstores!
One of my favorite aisles in any bookstore is the one stocked with memoirs, collections, biographies and road journals of bands. Here are five books focused on music that I’d recommend. Put on a playlist and dive in.
