Indies Fight Prime

SuperBooksellers - MainStreetBooksMinonNDSome indies used their unique voices and humor this week to remind customers that independence has its advantages.

Main Street Books in Minot, ND, shared this image of their amazing booksellers with the message: “We may not have Amazon Prime Day, but we do have super booksellers every day. And you can’t find this crazy crew of super heroes anywhere but at Main Street Books. And did we say we are not only strong but we are nice too? And nice is important.”

And Valerie Koehler from Blue Willow Bookshop in Houston, TX, sent a newsletter with the subject line: #Primeallthetime. In it she wrote: “We’ve heard that there’s a “Prime Day” coming this week. We’re poking a little fun at that because we’re #primeallthetime here at Blue Willow Bookshop! Follow us on Twitter @Bluewillowbooks and come in for a cookie on Wednesday!”
