NJ Indies Bookmark for Independent Bookstore Day

Discover the dots and connect with NJ bookstores.
We challenge you to visit them all!

In honor of Independent Bookstore Day on April 30, 2016, we've spearheaded the creation of a New Jersey Independent Bookstore Map bookmark, to be handed out at over twenty participating independent bookstores in NJ. The bookmark will display all participating bookstore locations on a map of NJ, in addition to listing each store’s address and contact information.
We often hear people say, “there aren’t any independent bookstores around anymore.” In reality, the NJ indie bookstore network is one of strength and abundance.
Take a moment to check out the bookmark and find your nearby bookstore. We then encourage you to stop in and find out their story (it’s always a unique one) of how the store came to be and how a local, independent bookstore can still thrive in the age of ebooks and Amazon. Then, spread the word! Indie bookstores are community centers, where one can browse for books, attend events, chat with other book lovers, and discover new reads. The human-interest story practically writes itself!
Physical bookmarks will be handed out on April 30 and beyond, while a digital version of the map will be available for social media and online sharing. 
We encourage you to snap a selfie with your bookmark at a NJ bookstore and share online using the #NJIndies hashtag.
