Independent Bookstore Day is coming up on April 25. While I had planned on visiting some in Berkeley and Oakland, it seems that isn’t going to happen this year.
I was glad to see that several bookstores, one mentioned in the link above, had to rehire people because online orders were overwhelming. Another, also linked above, had a gofundme page to help them out, and got an overwhelming response.
Support your independent bookstores! They need to be there when we get back to “normal.”
