wanderinglynn @RadicalReader me neither! But I thought they were very cool. 7mo
wanderinglynn @Sarah83 They were super cute. I‘m keeping them in mind for a potential swap gift. 7mo
Sarah83 I guess the pages are super thin? Like in a Bible? 7mo
wanderinglynn @Sarah83 Yes, that‘s right. 7mo

Stop 1 on my mini #SEABookstoreDay—Liberty Bay Books in Poulsbo, WA. I got 2 ARCs (free), bought the 2 other books, plus got 2 other freebies (a Macmillan Collector‘s Library Poems to Keep in Your Pocket & Atlas Obscura Literary Wonders mini Guide).

Texreader Jealous!!! 7mo
wanderinglynn @Texreader Next year, plan a trip out here. We‘ll do the whole challenge! 😀 7mo
Texreader @wanderinglynn Tell me where and when and I‘m there! 7mo
wanderinglynn @Texreader Awesome! 🙌🏻 I‘ll start planning a Litsy Seattle Bookstore Day 2020 adventure. Maybe some other Littens will be interested in coming out too. 7mo

So Seattle takes #IndependentBookstoreDay seriously. Visit all 21 info bookstores in 1 day and earn the Grand Champion card. It even has its own hashtag: #SEABookstoreDay
https://www.seattlebookstoreday.com

So challenge accepted! Let‘s see how many I can visit in 1 day.

LauraJ Someday I will plan a vacation around this. 7mo
QueenJen I'm very jealous! 7mo
wanderinglynn @LauraJ You should! It‘s a growing thing in Seattle. The first year (2015), they had 42 people complete the challenge. Last year, nearly 500 did. 7mo

wanderinglynn @QueenJen it‘s going to be epic. I‘ve plotted it out. Drive time alone (including ferry rides) has it at a bit over 6 hours. That doesn‘t include finding a parking space & going inside. 😂 7mo
Mitch You can do it! 🏆💪🏻 7mo
wanderinglynn @Mitch Thanks ☺️ But after mapping it out, I don‘t think I can do it. It would take nearly all day (leaving my house before 7am and not getting home until after 7pm) because traffic, 2 ferry rides, & trying to find parking (which is a pain in Seattle). It would be a lot easier if I had a buddy or two . So maybe I put this on the bucket list for next year & just stick to the 3 or 4 stores that are near me on the peninsula. 7mo
Scochrane26 That would be so cool! 7mo

Spoils of the day. I'm SO happy. Checked many things off my list, and was able to find deals on specific things I've been wanting. Many of these were used, signed, or exclusive. Trial run of #SEABookstoreDay (we're going to try to do the whole thing next year) was a rousing success. Thanks to @RavenRenegade for womanning the wheel. #indiebookstore #aprilbookshowers #crashqueensdoSEAbookstoreday17 #shenanigans

Last stop of the day (#5)! Gap in posting due to a pause for dinner and extended browsing at one of our favorites. Was so excited to find a used copy of this one, and Jesmyn Ward's Salvage the Bones. Headed home to put our feet up and dive in! @RavenRenegade and I had way too much fun touring #independentbookstoreday.

Apparently blue books are the order of this #independentbookstoreday! Stop #4 led to an edition of Dracula that I do not yet own (WHAT?) and a beautiful memoir (I bought nonfiction - WHAT?). A surprise Blind Date with a Book with ARCs subbed in for the last stop. Onward! @RavenRenegade

It was signed, guys. I couldn't NOT. Independent Bookstore Day stop #3: Queen Anne Books. Missed out on Blind Date with a Book (but got delicious Cubano coffee), and the Nasty Women book was already sold out, but was able to order one with a fully signed bookplate. (Pic to follow when it comes in!) That's how it goes on #independentbookstoreday. Onward! @RavenRenegade

Independent Bookstore Day stop #2: Secret Garden Books (hi @BeckyMerilatt )! To get the Rainbow Rowell short, you had to buy a YA book. DARN. (Kelly Barnhill is amazing, and if you haven't read Girl Who Drank the Moon, RUN DON'T WALK.) So excited to read this one! On to store 3! @RavenRenegade
