Today is the last day to vote for the Readers Recommend Your Favorite Bookstore contest, hosted by Sourcebooks. Brilliant Books, the bookstore where I work as a children's specialist, is in the running - currently coming in at #4.
The winner of this contest will be awarded a $3000 grant to be used at their discretion. If Brilliant Books wins, we have pledged to match the funds - for a total of $6,000 - and give twelve Michigan schools $500 each to be used towards books!
I hope that you'll vote for Brilliant Books today, even if you've never come in to visit or shopped with us.
Why? Because we know that there are many, many great bookstores out there, but this is an opportunity for us to give funds for books to a number of great Michigan schools and we can't do it without your help!
You can find more information about the contest and our pledge here.
Please consider casting your vote for Brilliant Books.
