It’s August and with this misty month comes two fun bookish events.  The first is Love Your Bookshop Day , August 12 and Book Week, the last week in August.

Love Your Bookshop Day is going to be loads of fun for young and old. Local bookshops will be holding different events. There will be character dress ups, continuous reading, special author and illustrator appearances, fun activities and more. Please support your local bookshop and go along to these events. Imagine how it would be if we could only buy books on line. Those wonderful rainy Sunday’s spent huddled in the bookshop, touching, smelling and looking through books wouldn’t exist.

I will be visiting my local bookshop, Farrells, in Main Street Mornington to join into their Love Your Bookshop Day events.

Please come along if you are in the area and chat with me about all things books and bring the little ones for story reading and colouring in activities from 11-12. After me there’ll be lots more things to do.
