Books Are My Bag is a nationwide campaign running asking us book lovers to support our local bookshops as sadly the number of high street shops are dwindling on a daily basis. The campaign kicks off today with bookshops across the country hosting 'The Big Bookshop Party' to celebrate everything that is good about books.
As well as the main campaign Books Are My Bag are also running the Make Your Mark competition where you can tell everyone what's so great about your local bookshop by submitting a quote about why this bookshop is your favourite with a photo of you with your Books Are My Bag tote bag.
Each month between now and the end of the year one winner will be selected and their entry will then be made into unique bookmarks for you and your nominated bookshop. You'll also win £100 worth of Nation Book Tokens and a copy of Brutal Simplicity of Thought, the book which inspired the Books Are My Bag Campaign. You can enter via Twitter, Instagram or email - click here for more details.
