Bay Area indie bookstores to celebrate Bookstore Romance Day

Love reading about love? Then mark your calendar for Aug. 19. That’s Bookstore Romance Day, when about a dozen bookstores around the Bay Area will join a national celebration of the romance novel.

Bookstore Romance Day, launched in 2019, is aimed at helping independent bookstores connect with romance readers and writers — and it’s coming to independent bookstores across the U.S.

This year’s celebration brings a series of bookish events for Bay Area romance readers, including a conversation with two authors at Books Inc. in Campbell, discounts on romance novels at Pegasus Books in Oakland and Berkeley and a queer rom-com book and wine pairing in Mountain View.

Campbell’s Books, Inc. will host a discussion between romance authors Evie Blum and Lexie Sloane on Aug. 19. Blum is the author of “Ship It,” a romance novel set at a Silicon Valley start-up. Sloane’s latest, “Broken Summit,” is a romance set during a mountain getaway. The conversation starts at 1 p.m. at Books Inc. Pruneyard at 1875 S. Bascom Ave. #600 in Campbell. Find details here.

Pegasus Books in Oakland and Berkeley will offer 20% off all romance novels all day on Aug. 19 and will raffle off three romance novel-themed gift baskets.
