IBNYC Summer Update

32_26_arts_wordbasketball01_zHello indie friends! We hope summer is going swell for y’all. We’ve been busy reading (of course!) so we’ve taken a break from regular updates on the blog until the worst of the summer heat has past. We’ve put our Upcoming 25 on hold, but watch this space on August 25th for the September edition, which promises to be a jam-packed listing of events happening at indie bookstores around NYC. We’ve also taken a break from our regular news roundups, but will get back into that post-Labor Day.

However, in the meantime, do keep an eye on our Twitter feed, where we continue to link to recent mentions of NYC indie bookstores in the news. We’ll also start mentioning more events and will RT (re-tweet) the best tweets of indie bookstores around NYC. (Check out our list of which stores are on Twitter and Facebook.)
