Seattle Independent Bookstore Day Challenge, Pt 1: planning tips for success

Hello friends! 

If you've been following along with my Instagram adventures, then you know that I recently completed the 2018 Seattle Independent Bookstore Day Challenge! *crowd goes wild* For those of you who don't follow my IG, or who missed it, let me explain:

Every year, on the last Saturday of April, it is Independent Bookstore Day nationwide, and in Seattle we booknerds go all out. Starting in 2015, Seattle's indie bookstores collaborated to create a "daylong celebration of the work [they] do and the readers and customers who make it possible. [They] offered many of the same events and exclusive items as [their] colleagues across the country, but [they] also introduced the Passport Challenge, encouraging readers to get their passports stamped at as many participating stores as possible on Bookstore Day. Those who get their passports stamped at every participating store that day are crowned Grand Champions, with a crown, a party, and best of all, a 25% discount at all participating stores for the following year."
