Morning everyone, [K] here, did you know it is Bookshop Day today?
BOOKS ARE MY BAG is a nationwide campaign run by the Booksellers Association to celebrate bookshops. It comprises Bookshop Day and the Books Are My Bag Readers Awards. At the centre of the campaign is the iconic BAMB tote bag. Since the campaign launched, over a million people have worn a Books Are My Bag to show their love for their local bookshop.
Booksellers, publishers and authors work collaboratively on the campaign to encourage consumers to shop in their local bookshop and ensure their high street is thriving. BOOKS ARE MY BAG launched in 2013 and created pro bono by the advertising agency, M & C Saatchi.
Bookshops are at the very core of BOOKS ARE MY BAG. Every year over a thousand bookshops around the country take part in Bookshop Day by holding special events, creating bespoke window displays and more. The campaign celebrates the hard work, knowledge and passion that goes into being a bookseller on Bookshop Day and EVERY day of the year.
