Saturday Is Independent Bookstore Day!

April 26, 2018


Celebrate Independent Bookstore Day this Saturday, April 28, at your BMC Bookshop.  We are proud to be a part of this one-day nationwide party that recognizes the resurgance of independent stores. We're very much a part of the movement, having shucked off chainstore management and returned to independence here just three years ago.


“Consumers control the marketplace by deciding where to spend their money. If what a bookstore offers matters to you, then shop at a bookstore. If you feel that the experience of reading a book is valuable, then read the book. This is how we change the world: we grab hold of it. We change ourselves.”

― Ann Patchett, bestselling author and co-owner of Parnassus Books

Your BMC Bookshop will be open 11:00 am to 4:00 pm on Saturday, and we have some fun exclusive IBD merchandise, including:

  • Flash fiction from great short story writers
  • A book club journal including quirky recommended reading lists
  • A Utility Pouch featuring a Colson Whitehead quote
  • Signed copies of REDLANDS, Volume 1

We also have some great giveways:


Get your choice of one giveaway just for coming into the store on Saturday.  Get one additional giveaway free with any book purchase -- buy one book, get one more giveaway, buy two books, get two more giveaways, buy three ... you get the idea.  (Yes, that is a Harry Potter iron-on patch -- a cool IBD exclusive.)

Exclusive merchandise and giveaways are in limited quantities -- some very limited.  Come in early on Saturday!  Don't miss out!

Finally, come in, snap a pic and send a Seussagram!




See you on Saturday!
