- CELEBRATE LOVE YOUR BOOKSHOP DAY WITH US -
Saturday August 12 is Love Your Bookshop Day, and boy-oh-boy, we have some exciting things planned for you.

STORYTIME
2.30pm - 3.30pm
Come dressed as your favourite book character and enjoy an all-ages storytime in our magical children's section. Listen as some of our favourite books come to life, and get an exciting sneak-peek of a soon-to-be released title. We'll even have a prize for the best costume!

AFTERNOON TEA
2.30pm - 4pm
While we entertain your kids with storytime, you can peruse the shelves, nibble on cupcakes, sip on some bubbles and chat with our staff to find your next favourite read.

MASSIVE MYSTERY BOOK GIVEAWAY
All Day
Ever wanted to read like a bookseller? We're giving away over 100 early unedited proof copies of our favourite books. Yep, you heard us: 100 of them. With every purchase of a book you get to choose a specially wrapped book (in brown paper to give it that authentic mysterious feel) with clues about the story inside. But get in quick! They won't last long.
