Happy California Bookstore Day!

Happy California Bookstore Day!

Here in San Diego, celebrations are happening at The Grove and the Library Shop downtown, as well as at Mysterious Galaxy in Kearny Mesa and Warwick’s in La Jolla.

So what’s the big deal about going to your neighborhood bookstore on May 3?

Well, you get a shot at snagging these limited-edition items – only available on California Bookstore Day – for one thing. Personally, I’m gunning for one of these Lemony Snicket “Bookish Life” prints:


I also wouldn’t mind scoring one of the California Classics box set: John Fante, Charles Bukowski, Armistead Maupin and Elmore Leonard all in one box. How awesome is that?

If you’re bookish and you live in California, check out the California Bookstore Day website to find a participating independent bookstore near you and join in on the fun!
