Who needs an excuse to buy a book?
Well, today’s your chance. September 7th is National Buy a Book Day! This happens every year to encourage people to support their local bookstores. This is not an anti-ebook or anti-Amazon day. It’s just a day that urges us to enter our local Barnes & Noble, Mardel’s, or Lifeway, and buy a book full price.
National Buy a Book Day was started by NY Times bestselling author, Philip Athans in 2010 and it’s only growing in awareness. Personally, it’s one of my favorite days of the year! Are you going to join in?
Just one book. It could be a journal, a gift for someone else (early Christmas?), that one book you’ve always wanted, a kid’s book, or even a favorite book you want to donate to your local library!
You can even order them online directly through a bookstore. Need some suggestions? Here are some of my favorite books (with purchase links!) I’d recommend to anyone:
- dystopian/fairytale: Cinder, by Marissa Meyer
- Christian romance: A Voice in the Wind, by Francine Rivers (book one in the Mark of the Lion trilogy)
- non-fiction: Love Does, by Bob Goff
- more non-fiction: Radical, by David Platt
Last year, I bought Girl of Fire & Thorns by Rae Carson and ended up loving the whole series. On that note, I’m off to Barnes & Noble!
So…what book do you think you’ll buy?
