This Saturday, 3rd October, is Bookshop Day.
Bookshops across the UK and Ireland are preparing for the first of three “Super Thursdays” this Autumn, with 600 new hardbacks due to hit the shelves on Thursday 3 September, a 28 per cent increase on the equivalent day last year.
With many book releases having been pushed back until the Autumn due to COVID-19, bookshops are now gearing up for a bumper Autumn, with thousands of books set to be released. Authors with books published on the first big day of new releases of the Autumn include: Nadiya Hussain, Lauren Child, Caitlin Moran, Richard Osman, Ant and Dec, Will Young, Raynor Winn, Pinch of Nom, and Ruth Jones.
Bookstores across the country have worked hard to create safe shopping environments for browsers; creating just one more reason for book lovers to #ChooseBookshops this Autumn. With so many books published on the same day, and throughout the Autumn, booksellers across the country will be on hand to help readers and gift-buyers discover the right books for them.
But don’t forget your Library too – it’s Libraries Week next week too
