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 16th, 2024 (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, Instagram) 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 - 2023 readers, publishers and bookstores in UK, the Netherlands, Italy, Portugal and even Brazil joined in. In 2024 the story continues!
