December 3rd is Take Your Child to a Bookstore Day

Saturday is Take Your Child to a Bookstore Day, which is an absolutely wonderful idea that began in 2010 when Jenny Milchman, a mother an mystery writer wrote a blog post.  Within a month, the idea had gone viral.  Publisher Weekly reported that 80 bookstores participated in 2010.  This year, 150 bookstores plan on participating.  It’s a wonderful opportunity to share the joy of literature with your children, grandchildren, or the children of a friend.
