Save Bookstores! ~ Go Book Shopping on June 16, 2012!

From the Literary Tourist blog:

Literary Agent Kelly Sonnack has put up a Facebook page for an annual event she launched last year to help ‘Save Bookstores’. This is the poster that one of her clients, children’s book illustrator Sam Zuppardi, designed for this year’s campaign.

As Sam puts it: “All you have to do is head into town on June 16th and pick up a few books from somewhere other than the internet. There’s nowt like a good browse, after all.”


Sounds like a plan! – so head out on June 16th to your local new and used book shops – and then lets make a habit of it…
