March 26th, 2016 is Indiebookday!
What is Indiebookday?
You love beautiful and well made books?
On Indiebookday you can share this love with everyone!
It's quite simple:
On March 26st, 2016 (a saturday) visit a local book store and buy a book. Any book you would like to have. All that matters is that it's been published by an independent publisher.
Then post a picture of the book, the cover or yourself with the book (or whatever you like) on a social network (like Facebook, Twitter, Google+) or on your blog, using the Hashtag "#indiebookday". If you like this event, invite others to join in.
The first Indiebookday in 2013 has received widespread attention throughout the german speaking countries. In 2014 and 2015 readers, publishers and bookstores in UK, the Netherlands, Italy and Portugal joined in. And 2016 is getting even bigger!
There are a lot of wonderful independent publishers out there, creating great books and putting a lot of passion into it. But many of them are very little known. The Indiebookday can help to create some attention and show the beauty of independent publishing.
