A day to support independent bookshops on the first Saturday in October.

Bookshop Day has taken place on the first Saturday in October since 2016. October is an important time for the launch of new books in the run-up to the Christmas period.

Bookshops are encouraged to host special parties, events and book-signings to mark Bookshop Day and the start of the crucial autumn selling season.

Every year, more than a thousand bookshops around the country take part in Bookshop Day by holding special events, creating bespoke window displays and more. The event is part of the “Books Are My Bag" campaign which is organised by the Booksellers Association.
