Civilised Saturday

This year, a number of Bookshops are holding what is being described as "Civilised Saturday", which is being sold as "an antithesis to Black Friday.
Now, I'm all for a bit of civilised behaviour, but as a business, i'd be absolutely delighted if the shop was completely mobbed out with customers all day on Friday, picking up lots and lots of brilliant books.

I kind of understand the idea of "Civilised Saturday", which is why we're holding Sausage Saturday (a chance for people to spend lots of money here and also enjoy some lovely food supplied by local businesses), but I think that any opportunity should be taken advantage of.
Sorry if this seems a bit greedy, but as well as being a lovely bookshop that tries to support and celebrate its local area, we are also a shop who wants to be profitable and BUSY.
So maybe, just maybe, we'll be offering a few tasty little bargains on Friday too.
Shoot me (don't shoot me).

Recommend a book for us to stock at Christmas (please) and WIN BIG!!!

You like books, yeah?
Excellent. So do we.

We want the shop to be chockablock with gorgeous books this year and we'd really appreciate it if you could help us to choose some of them please?

We've started displaying a load of fantastic books that we think our customers will love, but we'd like you to help us improve our selection.

Is there a book you'd like to get this Christmas? 
Is there a book you think people should be buying this Christmas?

If so, please get in touch with the title of the book and a very short review (less than 30 words if possible). We'll then use your review to advertise the book in the Bookshop on one of those little recommends cards. You will even be name checked on the card (yes, you will be FAMOUS!).

A bit like this

Email us at
Tweet us at @biggreenbooks

Not only that, but ONE lucky person who sends us a review will win £20 (that's twenty pounds) to spend at the shop! (if you don't live nearby, we'll post your books to you).

We'll be taking suggestions until the end of November.

Ta very much.
