The Cape & Islands Bookstore Trail: Read the Cape on Independent Book Store Day (April 27)!
To celebrate Independent Book Store Day, we, along with 19 other independent book stores (and counting!) here on the Cape are teaming up to bring you the Cape & Islands Independent Bookstore Trail! On April 27th, pick up a trail guide featuring participating stores. Visit 5 or more independent book stores--at any date or time throughout 2019-- and receive a special button.
Every independent book store is unique. it is an essential feature of who we are. Making people happy is our goal: through fostering a love of reading, and encouraging curiosity and the exploration of possibilities. Working at an Independent Book Store feels like more: Independent Book Stores are more than brick and mortar stores.
- community centers and local anchors run by passionate readers
- they are entire universes of ideas that contain the possibility of real serendipity.
- they are lively performance spaces and quiet places where aimless perusal is a day well spent. (quotes from The Independent Book Store Day website http://www.indiebookstoreday.com/)
We can't think of a better way to celebrate independent book stores and indulge your inner book-nerd than a day spent on The Cape & Islands Bookstore Trail!
