Independent Bookstore Day at La Playa Books!

As part of #bookstoreday 2018, La Playa Books and eight other local independent booksellers are taking part in a Bookstore Crawl!

Pick up your passport at any of the nine locations & get it stamped with a purchase on April 28th and 29th.

Collect four stamps & get a limited-edition San Diego Bookstore Day Crawl tote and entry into a drawing for gift packages reflecting the individual stores and their curated collections!


Readers who collect stamps from all nine stores will be eligible for a raffle for a grand prize of gift certificates totaling more than $200!

Independent Bookstore Day celebrates local brick-and-mortar bookstores all across America. La Playa Books and many of our fellow indies will be doing lots of fun stuff all day long, and will offer a range of unique book-related items for sale only on that day, and only in-store.

La Playa Books’ celebration will include:

  • all-day coffee provided by our neighbors The Living Room cafe.
  • Author of ‘Love, Triangle’ Marcie Colleen will be in store signing books from 2-4pm
  • free advanced reading copies with purchase until supplies run out
  • and more to come!

Don’t miss out on this celebration of all things bookish! We can’t wait to see you there!
