Tomorrow’s the Day!

Filed under: Kids and Life,The Writing Life — jenny @ 6:59 pm

Get ye to a bookstore on December 4th. Take a son, daughter, grandson, granddaughter, cousin, student, or friend. Take your inner child.

And if you go, don’t forget to ask if the bookstore staff if they know it’s Take Your Child to a Bookstore Day. (As if *anyone* could not know ;)

On the website next week there will be a montage of photos, video clips, and bookseller/customer accounts of what the first annual Take Your Child to a Bookstore Day was like. A foundation has indicated that depending on how strong the movement is, it may offer support so that kids who have never been to a bookstore–or bought a book–can do so.

So get out there and participate, then come over to the site and share your memorable moments. Already this holiday has put me in contact with people from Tennessee to Saskatchewan. Today PW posted a link to an article, and Minotaur tweeted the Day.

And none of that would have happened if it weren’t for bloggers and journalists, parents, and of course, booksellers–and readers like you.

Let’s all celebrate together tomorrow.


  1. I posted about it on my blog today (Sat. Dec. 4th), Jenny. This is a great idea! I hope it will gather momentum and become an Annual Happening. :)

  2. So do I, Yvette! Perhaps we can brainstorm ideas for next year. I’m going to go to your blog in a few–very excited to read, and thanks for getting behind the Day!
