NZ Bookshop Day, Saturday, 29 October 2016

Come celebrate with us!
You, your family and friends are warmly invited to celebrate the magic of bookshops and books with us on NZ Bookshop Day.

Just fill in the special postcard in-store on NZ Bookshop Day with your reason(s!) why you love your bookshop, and hand it to a bookseller. Every bookshop in the nation will send their own 20 favourite comments to Wellington where the best one will be chosen – will it be yours? What books would you buy? Dream about it while you…
