Get excited! In a little over a month we’ll be celebrating how amazing and magical bookstores are and would love to see all you book lovers here at Paperchain for Love Your Bookshop Day on Saturday the 12th of August.
We’ll have a few cheeky extras for you to enjoy in addition to our regular fabulous range and legendary staff so don’t miss out!

Come for a cup of tea and try some toothsome* literary treats that we’ll be whipping up and if you are looking for literary love you’re in luck!

We’ll be hosting ‘Blind dates with a book’ for you to have a shot at finding that perfect read, and we’re also breaking out our favourite vinyls for a variable soundtrack throughout the day, so bring along a favourite album, we’d love to hear what you’ve got!

And to further enable all our book-loving tragics, we’ll be posting a code on social media for you to use at the time of purchase for a cheeky little discount on the day.

See you all on August 12th, come and show us some love!
