Celebrate Indie Bookstores with Two Great Events

BI storefrontTo help kick off the first National Independent Book Store Day, Bookmark It (3201 Corrine Drive, Orlando FL 32803) will be host to two fun Indie-bookstore based events:

On Saturday, May 2 (Independent Bookstore Day), Bookmark It will start a month-long “Litlando Shelfy” social media contest where customers can earn a 10% discount on all in-store book purchases in May just by taking a selfie of themselves in front of the shelves of any indie bookstore, posting it on Instagram or Twitter and tagging it with @bookmarkit_shop #Litlandoshelfie. The person with the most likes or shares at the end of the month wins a $75 shopping spree at Bookmark It.

Hint: Creativity and exotic locales are sure to be crowd favorites.

Then on Sunday, May 3, join Bookmark It for their fourth Locally Grown Words Book Fair at East End Market. From noon to 4 p.m. over 40 local writers representing a variety of genres will be lining the halls and courtyard. There are many new authors and books at this summer’s event. Go and stock up for your summer reading and support Central Florida’s talented writing community.
