The 10th of August is Australia’s National Bookshop Day. You can watch a cute youtube video of William McInnes making the most of his local indie bookstore here. All sorts of things could be going down at your local bookstore from free books to book readings and other events. There is even a chance to vote for your favourite bookshop here. Voting closes 5 August.
So for at least one day of the year, buy local.
