Happy Independent Bookstore Day!

Today is Independent Bookstore Day.

From the official site:

Independent bookstores are not just stores, they’re community centers and local anchors run by passionate readers. They are entire universes of ideas that contain the possibility of real serendipity. They are lively performance spaces and quiet places where aimless perusal is a day well spent.
So true, isn't it?  I love spending time at bookstores, whether I'm browsing the shelves, sitting and reading, or even just hanging out and working on my laptop.

One of my favorite indie bookstores in Denver is the Tattered Cover, a small local chain with a few locations.  It's always been a unique store with a strong sense of atmosphere.  Recently, one of their branches moved to a new location that's actually closer to me, so I'm excited to check it out, hopefully this weekend.

What are your plans for the weekend?  Does it include visiting an independent bookstore?
