This Saturday, April 29th, is Canadian Independent Bookstore Day. This is the time where readers and industry professionals celebrate indie bookstores across the country, recognizing the hard work of booksellers. After all, they are the heart and soul of the publishing industry. And just in case you think Canadians aren't buying books, you ought to know that in 2022, almost 52 million physical books — worth $1.1 billion — were sold in Canada.
So, as a Canadian author of 10 books and counting, may I ask that you consider buying your next book directly from your favorite local book store? They’ll sure appreciate it. And so will I.
