Love Your Bookshop Day

Saturday 11 August 2018
7:30 AM – 6:00 PM
In store at Avid Reader Bookshop

It is showtime! And Avid Reader is all dressed up in her weekend best and feeling chuffed to be wearing the blue ribbon for bookselling. Time to share the joy of a bookshop on Love Your Bookshop Day. And what a fair day we have for you. 

BEST IN SHOW
Kicking off bright and early we have our all day DOG OF THE DAY competition from 8.30am - 5.00pm. Bring your dog in and photograph them with their favourite book in store and post it to instagram tagging us @avidreader and the best dog photo of the day will win a prize.

BEST 1ST SENTENCE
Tell us the best opening sentence of a book you have read and go in to the draw to win a $100 GIFT VOUCHER from Avid Reader. Enter online HERE.

CAKE COMPETITION
Fiona Stager has judged many a bake-off in her time and it just wouldn't be a Love your Bookshop day without the traditional AVID BAKEOFF. Bring your cake in by 11.00am for a midday judging.

PICKLE COMPETITION
Our picklers and fermenters are multiplying so put down some pickles and bring them in by 11.00am for a midday judging. BEST BOTTLE OF PICKLES wins a prize.

BOOK ADVICE BOOTH
Anita Heiss has been giving book advice in our BOOK ADVICE BOOTH since the very first Love your Bookshop Day. We are proud to inform you that Anita is back along with Jackie Ryan, Cass Moriarty, and Sally Piper who will suggest books for you.

SHOWBAGS
It wouldn't be a country show without showbags and we are bursting at the seams with them. The first twenty customers who spend over $50 get a FREE SHOWBAG so get in early.

DOUBLE LOYALTY
You show us your loyalty by shopping here and we are returning the love with DOUBLE LOYALTY POINTS on the day because you are so goddarn loyal! Keep showing us the love people! We really appreciate your support.
