Free Book Stimulus Plan

We understand that you can buy books anywhere.  You understand that while loving independent bookstores is a wonderful thing, loving them with your shopping dollars is even more wonderful! 

These Southern Indie Booksellers want to entice you to shop with them.  Buy online or in store from any of these shops, then complete the form below and mail it in with your receipt and get a free book. 

What kind of book? you ask.  Answer:  A Free One.  Wanda Jewell, Executive Director of the Southern Independent Booksellers Alliance for nearly 20 years, is overrun with books.  All kind of books, galleys, advance reading copies, advance reader editions, paperbound and hardbound, slip-covered and not, limited editions, signed and unsigned, personalized and not; and finds herself overrun with books.  Books here, books there, books, books, everywhere…and when contemplating the management of her extensive personal library, had her aha moment.  How to weed her collection and support her southern indie bookstores at the same time?  Thus was born the Free Book Stimulus Plan.

Here’s what to do:

1.  Shop at one of these Southern Indie Bookstores

2.  Fill out this form completely, print it out and mail with a copy of your receipt to:

 FREE BOOK, 3806 Yale Ave., Columbia, SC, 29205

3.  Wait for your free book and pat yourself on the back for shopping local.

The receipt must include the name of the store and Wanda will ship you a free book from her personal library. This is open only to consumers living in the contiguous United States.  Completed form with receipt must be mailed to Free Book, 3806 Yale Ave., Columbia, SC 29205 and only while supplies last (consider this a challenge to deplete Wanda’s library – she doubts it can be done!) Wanda will pick a book for you.
