As consummate cat lovers, we are honored to participate in Independent Bookstore Day and excited for the opportunity to share a few of our favorite felines from the indie bookseller community.
Our manager of sales, Amanda, has been personally documenting hundreds of resident cats in bookshops all over the world. Learn more about her pet project HERE.
As was the case with the very old man in the children's classic Millions of Cats, it was hard to decide which cats to feature. Our pouch celebrates six real bookstore kitties from across the country and each represents a different genre of literature.
Trixie "Lovecraft" from Longfellow Books in Portland, ME (she has since been adopted) - HORROR
Bob Newhart "Twain" from Recycle Bookstore in Campbell, CA - CLASSICS
"Princess" Amelia from the Spiral Bookcase in Philadelphia, PA - SCI FI
Teacup "Potter" from Haslam's Bookstore in St. Petersburg, FL - YA
Eleanor "Brontë" from Twice Sold Tales in Seattle, WA - ROMANCE
Emily Grace "Holmes" from Edisto Island Bookstore in Edisto Island, SC - MYSTERY
The concept was brought to life through the illustrations of Jenny Herbert.
Please stop by your local bookshop this Saturday, April 30th, to join in the IBD festivities and scoop up this exclusive pouch while supplies last!
As an added bonus, a portion of proceeds will benefit the ASPCA and you can find your participating bookseller here.
