Book Blogger Hop - 6/19 - 6/25

Question of the Week:

Do you visit indie and/or used bookstores? Also, have you ever worked in any? (submitted by Kristin @ Lukten av Trykksverte)

My Answer:

We have one independent bookstore that is close to me, and I do visit.

They have had author events I have attended too.

I hope they start the author events again once we are cleared of the Coronavirus threat.


  1. One of my indie stores hosts quite a few signings at a nearby library and I attend those when its an author I adore. They started a few virtual signings, but I was a bit dismayed to learn you don't get a signed book. Just a book plate at a later date.

    1. That is different to not get a book.

      Thanks for your comment, Jessica.

  2. Our indie bookstore is allowing customers to browse by appointment only, and with appropriate precautions.

    1. That sounds good.

      Thanks for sharing that and for your comment, Deb.

  3. I love browsing the bookshelves in charity shops and I've attended a couple of book signings too Elizabeth that my local Waterstones have organised. However most of my reading is done on my Kindle.

    Hope you have a lovely weekend, Elizabeth. x

  4. Browsing is always fun.

    Thanks for your comment, Flora.

  5. I wish we had shops around here, I'd love to be able to attend author events.

    1. The author events are such fun.

      The library hosts them too.

      I wish you were able to have author events.

      Thanks for your comment, SJ.
