From Burke’s Books:

In a normal world, this week would have been a big build-up to one of the best days of the year for book stores around the country–Independent Bookstore Day! This Saturday was to be a big celebration, with giveaways and cookies and prizes and a packed house at our little store. All of that has been postponed until August so we’ll have to make do with what we have. Here are some ideas for you to celebrate your local book stores from the safety of your home!
