Roadmap Contest

We are thrilled to partner with the Midwest Independent Booksellers Association to distribute this year's Bookstore Roadmap! Independent bookstores put their towns on the map. The shelves of a bookstore are a destination, and each purchase is a new journey. That's the magic of a bookstore. It celebrates where it is while taking you anywhere you want to go.

Enter the roadmap contest in two easy steps:
  1. Post a picture of yourself on Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook inside or in front of any bookstore featured on this map. If you are shopping at a pop-up or online bookstores, post a picture of your visit and/or your purchase. 
  2. Use the hashtag #BookstoreRoadmap , #BookstoresAreDestinations, tag @KDsBooksLS , and tag MIBA using the handles listed below:

MIBA will randomly select one entry each month to win a $50 gift card at the member bookstore of your choice. On next year’s Indie Bookstore Day (April 27, 2024), they’ll randomly select one winner from all of the year’s entries to win a $500 gift card. The more stores you shop at and tag, the more likely you are to win the grand prize!

Complete contest info can be found on the MIBA website.
