Local artists Amanda Joyce Bishop and Ty Kreft have covered Arundel Books' boarded-up windows with this gorgeous mural, based on text by renowned author Neil Gaiman. If you want your own copy, it's available to order in poster format from the bookshop's website. Arundel Books via Facebook

In an alternate universe wherein a present-day global pandemic sounds like science fiction, Seattle is gearing up for Independent Bookstore Day this Saturday. But since our current reality doesn't include in-person shopping, local booksellers have been working hard to keep up their services remotely while the city remains in quarantine (we are an official UNESCO City of Literature, after all). So, until you can flip through real-life pages in your favorite shop, here are all the social distancing-friendly ways to support them, including making online purchases, placing phone orders, or buying gift cards. For more ways to show some love, tune in on Saturday afternoon for a virtual Bookstore Day conversation with The Book of Delights author Ross Gay and Third Place Books’ Robert Sindelar, or check out the audiobook platform libro.fm’s virtual Bookstore Day offerings—they’re donating 100% of proceeds from new memberships (and cute bookworm-themed socks) to local bookstores this week, as well as offering two free downloads on Saturday.
