Celebrate Independent Bookstores with Book Fair and Shelfie Contest

Bookmark It Summer

To help kick off the first NATIONAL Independent Book Store Day campaign, Bookmark It will be host to TWO fun Indie-bookstore based events:

On Saturday, May 2 (Independent Bookstore Day), we will start our 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.  Creativity and exotic locales are sure to be crowd favorites!

Then on Sunday, May 3, join us for our 4th Locally Grown Words Book Fair at East End Market !  From noon to 4pm over 40 local writers representing a wide variety of genres will be lining the halls and courtyard.  There are lots of new authors and books at this summer’s event.  Come by and stock up for your summer reading and support Central Florida’s talented writing community!
