Midwest Indie Bookstore Roadmap contest

For all of us Midwest booksellers, a sure sign of spring is back: the Midwest Indie Bookstore Roadmap! The print roadmap took a break for 2020 to honor stay-at-home pandemic regulations, but now it's back, maybe better than ever, celebrating the resilience and joy of independent bookstores. It will be released via our member stores on Independent Bookstore Day April 24. 

Our contest has been super popular among indie bookstore customers. Enter for a chance to win monthly prizes and an annual grand prize. Read the contest rules below.‚Äč

Contest Rules

Social distancing has only increased our love for reading and for indie bookstores. Shopping at indie bookstores can happen anywhere, especially from the comfort of your own home. Whether you bought it in-store or online, take a picture of your indie bookstore purchase and post it on Twitter, Instagram, or Facebook with the following

  • Tag the bookstore featured on the roadmap
  • Use the phrase "I shop at indie bookstores”
  • Hashtag it #bookstoreroadmap

We’ll randomly select one entry each month to win a $50 gift card at the bookstore of your choice. On next year’s Indie Bookstore Day (April 23, 2022), we’ll select one entry from among them all to win a $500 gift card. The more stores you shop at and tag, the more likely you are to win the grand prize.
