Prizes for shopping at your favorite independent bookstore
March 12, 2009
Which we’re sure is WORD!
Fantastic author Joe Hill declared March “Love Your Indie Bookstore Month” a few days ago, but yesterday he upped the ante by adding prizes to the whole she-bang.
“Okay, been thinking about this whole March-is-love-your-Indie-Bookstore month, and I realized trying to guilt people into going shopping with their local guy sucks. We don’t need guilt here; we need a contest.
So here’s introducing March-is-love-your-Indie-Bookstore: The Contest.
How to Play: Go to a local independent bookstore. Buy something. Save the receipt. Send a photo or scan of the receipt to this address: firstname.lastname@example.org. Make sure either your e-mail or your receipt includes the name and phone number of the bookstore in question.”
For more details, go to his post.
And then come into WORD and get a book so you can enter. Need a great novel? Well, you could get one of Joe’s books, or try out our book club pick, Mission to America. Want a great kids’ book? How about Duck! Rabbit! or Good Egg? We’ve got a ton of Agatha Christie hardcovers for only $12 each, a bunch of new stationary and journals, the new Scott Pilgrim book, and a staff of employees that will recommend the book you’re dying to read but don’t know about. See you soon!
