Clear your diary for tomorrow, because it is National Bookshop Day! Time to head out to your favourite independent bookshop and take home that book you have been coveting.
Me, I will be in Melbourne, so I will be dropping in to the mighty Collected Works, Australia’s only poetry & ideas bookshop, run by Kris Hemensley. Not exactly sure what book will be coming home, but rest assured, Collected Works will offer much choice!
National Bookshop Day is an important reminder to support your local independent and the physical media of ‘the book’. We live in a time when technology is rapidly advancing and the future of the book as we know (or is that already, knew) it, is increasingly fragile, so if you want books and bookshops around in the distant future, make sure you make yourself known to one tomorrow (and then regularly thereafter).
Would love to hear which bookshop you visit and what book you take home… so drop me a comment!
