My friend‘s SIL owns a bookstore out on Long Island, NY, so for #IndependentBookStoreDay I bought a book that the owner suggested and she shipped it to me 😁 We‘ll see🤷🏼‍♀️

Cortg I had a storytime mom recommend an adult Sandra Boynton book to me yesterday and thought, why not? I placed a hold. We‘ll see 😂 I hope you enjoy your pick! 5mo
youneverarrived Gorgeous cover 😍 5mo

Cinfhen I LOVE Sandra Boyton‘s baby books @Cortg I can‘t wait to hear how the adult book is ! That‘s sooooo cool 😎 5mo
Cinfhen It is a beautiful cover @Bookwormjillk @youneverarrived I hope it‘s as good inside 🫶🏼 5mo
Cortg @Cinfhen It was written in the 80‘s! Has good reviews though. 5mo
Cinfhen Interesting @Cortg I find a lot of books written 30+ years ago seem outdated. So I‘ll be curious to hear your thoughts 5mo
RebelReader I just finished this audio and it‘s wonderful. 5mo
Cinfhen Excited to hear that @RebelReader 😃I‘m looking forward 5mo

My bestie and I were celebrating #independentbookstoreday without even knowing it was Independent Bookstore Day 😁 But we always hit the stores when we meet - what else should two bookworms do together? 😉

Suet624 Exactly! 5mo

Here‘s my #IndependentBookstoreDay haul. 🙂📚 Two of these were free ARCs (tagged and Vera). I bought more than I intended to, but can‘t say I‘m surprised by that 😆. I had preordered Lives of Puppets and Boneshard War.

It was an amazing day, so much fun.

Have you seen this new David Eggers? I started reading it there (at Book People.) It has a wooden cover and beautiful illustrations. It‘s from the point of view of a wild dog, fun so far.

Meshell1313 Fantastic! 🙌 5mo
Gissy Impressive book haul! 📚📚📚😍🙌❤️ 5mo
tokorowilliamwallace The Terraformers sounds like it could be interesting. And Heaven, My Home is available for sale at my local library branch! I'll be curious to hear your thoughts on the genre elements for that one. 5mo
Soubhiville @tokorowilliamwallace I‘ve read another by her and thought it was good. I don‘t read many thrillers, but I did like it. 5mo
Hooked_on_books Great haul! Seems like an awesome day. 5mo

Books Kinokuniya - Carrollton | Carrollton, Texas (Bookstore)
post image

Independent Bookstore Day was a huge success! I didn‘t know that Kinokuniya had stores all over the world. The Austin store isn‘t listed on Litsy, that‘s the one we visited, not the tagged one. Several of these were first time visits for me, and we went to Book People as well but I forgot to get a photo. Book haul photo tomorrow, I‘m exhausted and I‘ve got some reading to do 😉📚🖤. I definitely splurged, but what a great day!

Hooked_on_books That sounds amazing! 😍 5mo
Meshell1313 Yes! Love the kinokuniya in Edgewater by me! 5mo
Soubhiville @Meshell I had no idea it even existed until a couple weeks ago. What a great place. Varied selection, much bigger than I knew going in, and in addition to books so much fun stuff! Stickers, paper products, and I may have gotten a panda hat for my cats… 🤣 5mo

I celebrated #independentbookstoreday by doing the #greatercharlottebookcrawl with some of my irl book club, including @wideeyedreader We were able to get to 8 stores and had an amazing time. I got some new bookmarks, pins, a tote, t-shirt and the stack of books. A very successful day!

AmyG Fun! 5mo
UwannaPublishme How cool! 🙌🏻 5mo

(Partial) book haul for #independentbookstoreday - I bought at least one book at every store visited today (tagged but not pictured is a book I ordered from powells awhile ago that happened to arrive today). I definitely went a little wild today and am now on a book buying ban for the foreseeable future.

Soubhiville I considered My Cat Yugoslavia as well. You‘ll have to tell me what you think. 5mo
Suet624 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 5mo
Eyelit @Soubhiville will do - you can borrow it as well if you like 😃 5mo

Independent Bookstore Day!!! Visited 7 book stores (and that‘s not even all of the indies in ATX - we are a great city for book lovers) - bought WAY too many books (no regrets)… just a great day all around!
Thanks @Soubhiville for the great idea and the trip planning 😘
Bookhaul to follow 📚😄 #independentbookstoreday

Soubhiville Thank you for the suggestion and your company! What a wonderful day. 🙂 📚 5mo

Took a reading break to visit 2 bookstores for Independent Bookstore Day with my husband! He spoiled me with three books. 😁 I started the tagged with lunch + coffee but mostly chatted about books with my husband. 🥰 #hour10 #readathon #deweysreadathon @DeweysReadathon #IBD #IndependentBookstoreDay The husband: @CounterfeitNickel

DeweysReadathon An all around excellent use of your break! 5mo
