Buy Indie Day

May 1st has been declared Buy Indie Day. The idea: buy one book—paperback, hardcover, audiobook, whatever you want!—at an independent bookstore near you.

Writer Kevin Guilfoile said it well when he posted:

"There's an opportunity here to make something very cool happen—near simultaneous, informal meet-ups of readers and writers in independent bookstores all over the country—and it can happen with practically no effort at all."

You can RSVP, invite friends and discuss with other indie shoppers on Buy Indie Day's Facebook page, and find an indie bookstore near you here.

Where you will be buying indie on May 1st?

I'll be buying from Jarrold's in Norwich - a department store that's been going for many years, and which always support local authors.

I remember Jarolds with great affection, Kate.

I'll be popping into a tiny bookstore in Ammanford. They don't sell romance, but they will order in a book so I'll do that.

Only just seen this - a little late - but will certainly get out and buy a book tomorrow. There aren't many indie booksellers near me, alas, but I'll do my best!

Locally, I'm sorry to say, our indie bookstore doesn't support romance. But I may get there and buy a book to support them anyway. Have to work it in, though, as I'm off to see the new grandson tomorrow and buying books is, for once, low on my list of priorities!

I bought indie in a shop in Broadway and had a lovely chat about books with the nice people running the shop
