Elliott Bay Book Company is one of the 27 participating bookstores.

Whether you dog ear, use a receipt, or just memorize your page number — it’s time to bookmark Saturday, April 29 in your calendars for Seattle Independent Bookstore Day.

This year, 27 different local shops are joining the page-turning event meant to bolster and support local booksellers with merch sales, prizes, and more. Participating shops include: Elliott Bay Book Company, BookTree, and Third Place Books.

One big, unifying experience is the return of the Bookstore Day Passport Challenge. This game challenges book worms to visit each of the 27 stores by Monday, May 8 in return for a 25% discount at each store.

Check out the full list of bookstores on the event website — and happy shopping.
