SIBD, as it’s called, continues to grow, attracting hundreds of visitors to the 19 participating bookstores in the Seattle area and offering a range of activities from in-store parties and giveaways to author appearances and the now-famous bookstore challenges.
On April 28, fans can pick up an SIBD Passport at any of the participating stores and use it to collect stamps during the day as proof of visits. Those who have their passports stamped at three or more different stores will receive a coupon good for a one-time, 30 percent-off discount at any one of the 19 participating stores.
For the truly dedicated (and swift of foot), people who visit all 19 participating stores on April 28 will receive a Champion Card entitling them to 25 percent off at all 19 participating stores for a year. In 2015, 42 valiant souls made the trek; last year that number grew to 320 bookstore champions. SIBD is going for another record this year.
