Wordcatcher Publishing wholeheartedly supports Books Are My Bag.
BOOKS ARE MY BAG is a nationwide campaign to celebrate bookshops. This collaboration between publishers, bookshops and authors is the biggest ever promotion of bookshops. For many people bookshops conjure fond images of book readings, in-store cafes and delight at the discovery of a new author. And in fact 56% of all book buying decisions are made by consumers in a bookshop, but we must continue to celebrate - and shop in! - our high street bookshops so they are not under threat.
