First Annual Bookstore Romance Day!

Old Firehouse Books is very excited to be participating in the first ever Bookstore Romance Day! We are proud to say we are a romance-friendly bookstore, and we want the Romance readers of Fort Collins to know it, too! If you’re a long-time romance reader, or just getting into the genre, we invite you to mark your calendars for Saturday, August 17th and join in the fun!

Bookstore Romance Day is a day designed to give indie bookstores an opportunity to celebrate Romance fiction—the books, readers, and writers—and strengthen the relationship between bookstores and the Romance community.

Stop by the store anytime on the 17th to take advantage of some romance-related deals, check out our staff's favorite romances (and maybe discover something new!), and pick up a book date...Blind Date with a Book is back! See below for all the things we have going on.

Many of our staff are romance readers, and they are happy to help you find your next romance read! We will have multiple romance displays up to browse, and if you are new to the romance genre, we can give you a crash course so you can dive in with confidence! 

For long-time (or short-time) romance readers, we will have information about our Romance Pull List available. This is a great way to make sure we have the books you want as soon as they hit the shelf! 

Blind Date with a Book: 

If you've been in the store in the last few months, you have probably seen our Blind Date with a Book display. This is where we wrap advanced copies of books we receive from the publisher, write a few key words about the book on the front, and put them out for you to peruse! If you see something that strikes your fancy, take it home, give it a read! Hopefully you'll like it. All we ask is for a donation that will go to support a charity or non-profit group. Since it is the first ever Bookstore Romance Day, and we want the event to succeed in the future, we will be collecting donations for the Bookstore Romance Day team! If you would like to support Bookstore Romance Day, you can also donate on their website here
