I have no excuse for not keeping up with my Post Every Day in June. WHOOP!
However, let’s talk about what week it is: Independent Bookshop Week! (In the UK and Ireland). I do not live in the UK or Ireland, but I am celebrating this week regardless.
Why? Because books, man.
I love books and I love people who love books. Independent bookshop owners and clerks love books. Why would they work there if they didn’t? (I guess a steady income too, but books!)
It upsets me that there are not many independent bookshops in my area. There might be two, but they’re at least a 15-minute car ride. And I’m also super lazy and just buy my books online or at Barnes & Noble.
I am going to attempt to visit an independent bookshop this week at some time. I’ll let you know what I buy!
But also, the most important thing, tomorrow is a big day. For the reading community and the world.
