Readers, rejoice! The Midwest Independent Booksellers Association (MIBA) is hosting its popular Midwest Indie Bookstore Road Map Contest: a yearlong affair that includes monthly prizes and an annual grand prize and rewards readers for using the print road map that MIBA releases each year that includes all of the independent bookstores in the region.
Participating in the contest is easy. Take a picture of your indie bookstore purchase, whether you bought it in a store or online; post it on Twitter, Instagram or Facebook; tag the indie bookstore where you made the purchase; and use the phrase, “I shop at indie bookstores,” along with the hashtag #bookstoreroadmap.MIBA will 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 – MIBA will select one entry from among all entries to win a $500 gift card. The more stores you patronize and tag, the more likely you are to win the grand prize. Find out more at midwestbooksellers.org.
