Join Us For the San Diego Book Crawl and Independent Bookstore Day Celebration! 
The San Diego Book Crawl is back to in-person crawling for the first time since 2019,
with more prizes and more independent bookstores to visit and support!
This year’s Crawl lasts 3 days and stretches from Coronado to Del Mar, starting Saturday April 30th,
in conjunction with Independent Bookstore Day
The San Diego Book Crawl is an annual event coinciding with the national celebration of Independent Bookstore Day, encouraging San Diegans to visit as many of the 11 participating local independent bookstores as possible over 3 days.

Book Crawlers receive a Book Crawl ‘Passport’ at their first bookstore stop and receive a stamp in that passport when they spend at least $5 at participating stores. The more stamps you collect, the more prizes you win (while supplies last)!

artist and bookseller from Mysterious Galaxy
5th store stamp: SD Book Crawl 2022 Limited Edition Tote Bag designed by Darcy,
