Reading to dogs? Dogs in bookshops? Scandinavian delights? Buy a book and feed an author? All this, and much more, are all on offer on Saturday, 29 October for NZ Bookshop Day – Your Place, Your Bookshop.
This year 170 bookshops from Whangarei to Invercargill are celebrating their vibrancy and uniqueness, as well as the vital role that bookshops play inour communities.
NZ Bookshop Day 2016 was celebrated nationwide on Saturday 29 October. There was booky fun, fizz and frolics - and plenty of tigers too. Here is our map of all the bookshops that took part this year and here is our events page. There was a carnival of books at Wardini Books in Napier; Scorpio Books had a literary quiz and ran a wonderful Instagram competition; and Paper Plus Lower Hutt let us win our height in books. Check out some of the photos in our flickr album.
