If any of your resolutions for the new year involve reading, or if the entire holiday season passed without unwrapping the books you really wanted, you can still start 2012 right by taking advantage of BookPeople’s Customer Appreciation Day this weekend.
All day Sunday, from 11 am to 11 pm, nearly everything in Austin’s favorite local bookstore will be 20% off. The store is rewarding readers for choosing local in their literary needs and thanking them for making 2011 a successful year amidst continuing competition from online retailers and the downfall of big box bookstore Borders.
Whether you’re looking for a gripping thriller, romantic escape, or revealing investigation, not only are their shelves stacked with plenty, they are also adorned with staff recommendations to help guide you through the stacks of options. Looking for inspiration and guidance on your newfound health goals? The health and fitness section is sure to satiate your hunger for knowledge. And don’t forget to check out their children and young adult sections for the young readers in your life who are building the habit of a lifetime one page at a time.
2012 is shaping up to be another good year for readers, with more highly anticipated titles scheduled for release, and a great event scheduled nearly every day at BookPeople. Stock up your library this Sunday and keep checking in with the store throughout the year.
