We are celebrating the diversity of independent bookshops throughout Upstate NY with a

 First Annual Bookshop Tour!

Throughout the month of October, tour beautiful Upstate NY by visiting 14 bookstores all located within 1 ½ hours of the city of Rochester. By visiting the stores you also may enter to win great prizes! Unlike many shopping destinations, every bookstore is completely unique. Yes, they all sell books – but are they New? Used? Rare? How are they organized? How is the selection curated? What non-book items are also stocked? Will an amazing local bookseller introduce you to your next favorite book?  There is only one way to find out!

How to Participate and Enter to Win a Gift Basket:

Print off a Passport or pick one up at your first bookshop. Each store will be offering 10% off your entire purchase just for visiting during the bookshop tour!  Be sure to get your passport stamped at every location you visit as the more stores you visit, the more entries you get to win the gift baskets!
