2024 San Diego Book Crawl & Independent Bookstore Day

2024 SD Book Crawl

It's time for the 2024 San Diego Book Crawl! 

In celebration of Independent Bookstore Day, THIRTEEN of San Diego's finest indie bookstores have once again teamed up to form the San Diego Book Crawl on Saturday, April 27, Sunday, April 28, and Monday, April 30! You can visit one or all thirteen, but the more bookstores you visit, the more prizes you can earn! 

All the participating stores.

The San Diego Book Crawl is an opportunity for readers to explore the diversity of San Diego's indie bookstores, shop local, and most of all have fun! Hopefully while discovering a new favorite read along the way!

And this year there's a bus!

There are 3 options to choose from, running on Saturday, April 27 only: six bookstore stop, nine stops, or all thirteen stops in one day! Click here for the itinerary options.

The buses are supplied by UC San Diego transportation, and all shuttles will begin and end at UCSD. Free campus parking will be given to those who sign up. Space on the Book Shuttle is VERY limited so don't delay! Sign up here:
