Independent Bookstore Day 2019

There are more people than we can possibly thank here, but we want to do our best to highlight some Independent Bookstore Day heroes that made 2019 the best Independent Bookstore Day yet!!

As a result of YOU spreading the word, we welcomed many new people to the Libro.fm family, some of whom have never tried audiobooks before. You’re empowering others to support local, independent bookstores with their audiobook purchases—which means you also just did all these things. You’re the reason that independent bookstores are thriving.

Over the weekend, hubby and I went on a date and visited a local bookstore @thewilddetectives. We discovered this place accidentally a few years ago while looking for a famous pie bakery in the same neighborhood. I was quite smitten with the bookstore because there, I found a certain edition of Fitzgerald’s book I haven’t been able to find. We haven’t been back in awhile so it was fun walking around the quaint and intimate bookstore, thumbing through some great books while sipping on yummy drinks. Then, we walked around the same neighborhood that is tucked away from downtown Dallas, away from all the everyday normal and noise. Acoustic music filled the streets and I could detect just the slightest hint of firewood the air. Though just minutes away, being tucked away from our every day normal in a cozy and intimate setting rejuvenated us~ . April 27th is Independent Bookstore Day! I’ll be honest, I don’t visit independent bookstores a whole lot here in Dallas just because the traffic and parking can get quite hectic. However, the past week, I have seen so many posts and stories about the importance of independent bookstores and was reminded how it is up to us to support them. Our quick visit to the bookstore also was the perfect date to remind myself to do better as well~ . There’s a post I read on @raven_book_store ‘s handle, {cannot remember which #bookstagrammer} shared it, and that post really got me thinking. As a lover of books, I’d rather spend a bit more to support bookstores that 1) still support the written language and 2) make the time and effort to connect us readers with authors and 3) give back to the community. ~ One way you can support your local bookstore is through @librofm (#partner) ! The only audiobook company that makes it possible so customers can purchase audiobooks from local bookstores! If you become a member before 4/27, not only will you get five free audiobooks, you can also use my code OWLSLIBRARY to get 3 for 1 audiobooks when you join as a memeber! I’m so excited that I’ll be spending Independent Bookstore Day at @politicsprose~ What are other ways can we support local bookstores? #IndependentBookstoreDay #librofmlisteningsquad
