We received this note and  now we are passing it along to all of you because we care, and we hope you do too!

"Hi everyone,

I’ve gotten sick of reading the bookstore obituaries in the publishing news, so I’m starting a viral campaign to get people, on one day, to go buy books from their local bookstore. Might not end up changing the tides, but it’s something small I can do and I’m getting a good response so far. Here are the details for you to pass on to your friends/family/fellow booklovers:

Who: You and all the book-lovers in your life
When: June 25th, the first Saturday of Summer!
Where: Your local bookstore
Why: Because bookstores are dropping like flies and we want them to stay alive

Thanks for passing this along to whomever you think would want to get on board.

Prefer to read on your *!*%$ (I left out a blank, blank word from Bailey) Walmazart Kindle? Then buy a book for a book-lover you know!

Mark your calendars! DO IT!"

You heard the lady - Just DO IT!

Kelly Sonnack is such a dear! We are planning to participate in this. Thank you very much for your comment on my blog about the paperback release of Swallows. If you'll send me your address to my personal email, (which is on my blog) I can send you a signed copy of the book.
