Celebrate bookshops, bookselling and the culture of books, reading and writing on Love Your Bookshop Day at Farrells Bookshop, 143 Main St, Mornington on Saturday 10 August 2019 from 9am to 4pm. There's a lot more than book business happening at Mornington. There's a heap of fun planned for the day, especially for the kids, which will give mum and dad some time to browse and buy their favourites. 10% of sales on the day will be donated to the Indigenous Literacy Foundation.

There's nothing like the romance and smell of a new book, not to mention the anticipation of reading the adventures that lie within. Farrell's staff are there to help you with advice if you're wrestling with your choice from a carefully curated range of books, and provide you with friendly service.

Activities for the day, especially for the kiddies include graffiti window, sausage sizzle, face painting for the kids (11am to 1pm), a win the window competition, double loyalty program points, a micro-story competition on social media, a kids' colouring competition and lots more.

Head HERE for the Colouring Competition. Entries close 5pm Wed 14 Aug 2019 and the comp is open to kids up to 12 years of age. You can collect a copy of the colouring ini sheet in-store or print it off the website. Winners will be announced and prizes awarded in-store at the Children's Book Week event with author Jane Godwin on Saturday 17 August 2019 at 3pm.
