National Bookshop Day At Avid Reader! says
Narrative busking? A literary kissing booth? Doggy dress-ups? The Great Bookish Bakeoff? It must be National Bookshop Day at Avid Reader!

Saturday August 13 2016 is National Bookshop Day. Held in hundreds of locations throughout Australia, we celebrate bookshops in all their glory in your community!

Here's what's going down at Avid:

Busk your favourite book! Join us on the footpath as we invite our customers to read from their favourite book and raise money for The Indigenous Literacy Foundation.

Anita Heiss - Author will be in-store giving advice from our official Book Matching advice booth! Like a Kissing Booth but much more enriching...

Canine Dress Up! Dress up your pooch as your favourite book character, have your photo taken and you could win a prize!

1pm :
Return of The Great Bookish Bakeoff! Bring in your best cake to have it judged by our expert (and hungry) panel. The best cake by an under-12 and an adult will win a prize! All cakes donated to Common Ground Queensland.

Join us as we read out the shortlisted entries from the Avid Flash Fiction Prize, Australia's richest per-word writing competition. Then we will announce the winner!

While you’re here, look out for the Avid Reader Classifieds in store and on our Facebook and Instagram – with eligible books vying for your affection – whether you’re into dark and mysterious strangers, long-term relationships or quirky comedians, our classifieds have something for everyone.

See you there!!!
