Avid Reader’s National Bookshop Day event just got a whole lot cuter.

This Saturday 9 August is National Bookshop Day, and while we can all agree that books are great, we can probably also agree that pugs are even better. But now you don’t have to choose between your two great loves — West End’s Avid Reader Bookshop and Cafe is bringing them together.

Brisbane’s pug owners are invited to visit the shop on the day with your furry friends and have your photo taken with your pug’s favourite book!

Of course, you don’t have to be a pug owner to take part in the festivities — there’ll also be live music on the footpath, limited edition tote bags designed by local artists, loads of giveaways, and special appearances by local authors Nick Earls and Sally Piper, who’ll be helping out behind the counter.

The store will also be discounting children’s and young adult books by 20 per cent.

Avid Reader Bookshop is located at 193 Boundary Street, West End.
