I live interstate. Can I still take part?
Yes, you can take part in this Victorian initiative if you buy online from Vic bookshops. Of course, we’d really like you to support your own local bookshops, too…

Do visits made prior to the 14 November 2020 count?
Sadly, no. 

Does it have to be nine different bookshops?
If you can! We want to make sure as many of Victoria’s bookshops as possible feel the love.

I’m not on social media. Can I still take part?
Yes, of course! We suggest you leave a positive Google review for the bookshop instead.

I don’t have access to a printer. Do I really need to print the bingo card?
You can mark-up the PDF instead! All we ask is you keep a record of the shops you’ve given love to.

How many books is too many books?
Sorry, we don’t understand that question.
