Very many thanks to all of you who helped us celebrateNZ Bookshop Day and the importance of your bookshop to your community. We were overwhelmed with the range of book-positive and bookshop-positive activities you thought up and undertook. Thank you for coming in to see us, bringing in your friends, bringing us coffee and cake and flowers, posting about us on social media, photographing yourselves and your family reading, singing us songs, buying books, making us drawings and models, reading to us from your favourite books, participating in our Man Booker discussion, attending the launch of our publications, photoshopping us into the Nelson Masked Parade(!), and telling us some really awful literary jokes. The winner of our Bookshop Bingo draw and recipient of a six-month VOLUME Reading Subscription is Amy Shattock. Many thanks to all entrants!   A bookshop is the expression of the passion of its community.
