Celebrating Bookstore Romance Day 2020 VIRTUALLY

Copper Dog Books Loves Romance

Copper Dog Books and Shelf Love Podcast - both based in Beverly, MA - are teaming up to celebrate Bookstore Romance Day: a day designed to give independent bookstores an opportunity to celebrate Romance fiction—its books, readers, and writers—and to strengthen the relationships between bookstores and the Romance community.

Since in-store browsing is not possible right now, we're going virtual. While we'll miss meeting you in person, it means that the festivities can go on longer than just one day.

Here's how we're celebrating:

  • Curated list of our favorite romances with recommendations to help you discover if it's YOUR next favorite romance.
  • 20% off all Selected Romances (Online Orders) between 8/15 and 8/23.
  • Romance Book Giveaways! Enter your email below for a chance to win!
  • And more ways to join us will be announced in the coming weeks!
Bookstore romance day 2020: August 15. Stay tuned for giveaways, curated recommendations, and discounts on romance novels from Copper Dog Books, Shelf Love Podcast's local indie bookstore, which proudly sells and supports romance.

The Podcast

Shelf Love

Thought provoking, critical discussions about literature's most polarizing genre. Shelf Love is a podcast that uses romance novels as the text to discuss identity, relationships, and how the modern romance genre continues to evolve.

On each episode, host Andrea Martucci is joined by a guest or guests - usually romance experts like authors, critics, reviewers, and readers - and we dig into a romance novel worth reading.

The Bookstore

Working as a dedicated community partner and creating a destination of discovery for our customers. The owners, Meg Wasmer and Julie Karaganis, are Beverly residents who are devoted to books and committed to serving our customers.
