Whether you dog ear, use a receipt, or just memorize your page number — it’s time to bookmark Saturday, April 27 in your calendars for Seattle Independent Bookstore Day.

This year, 28 different local shops are joining the page-turning event meant to bolster and support local booksellers with merch sales, prizes, and more.

One seller is new to the list — Charlie’s Queer Books located at 465 N. 36th St. in Fremont.

More participating shops include:

One big, unifying experience is the return of the Bookstore Day Passport Challenge. This game challenges book worms to visit each of the 28 stores by Monday, May 6 in return for a 25% discount at each store.
Check out the full list of bookstores on the event website — and happy shopping.
