Readers, you have made your voices heard by nominating your very favorite bookstore. With over 13,000 votes, there was so much support for your favorite bookstores. The votes have been counted, so please join us in saying a big “Congratulations!” to Anderson’s Bookshop (Naperville, IL) as being the most voted for store! (Anderson’s Bookshop is our longest running bookstore partner, but we swear this is all on the up-and-up, we’re not playing favorites.)
We are also so excited to congratulate our two second-prize winners: Page and Palette (Fairhope, AL) and Brilliant Books (Traverse City, MI).
Anderson’s will receive a $3,000 grant and Page and Palette and Brilliant Books will receive a $637 grant each (the population of Broken Wheel, IA).
Publisher’s Weekly announced the winners this morning, including Anderson’s plans for the grant! And Shelf Awareness (Anderson’s Picked as Readers Favorite Bookstore) told us about the matching grant that Brilliant Books is creating for seven Michigan school libraries – fantastic!
Bookstores make such a difference in our lives and we couldn’t be happier to present grants to all three stores. Thank you so much to everyone who voted, the support and love for your bookstores is heartwarming. We think that Sara and all of Broken Wheel, IA would approve.
