2024 San Diego Book Crawl and Independent Bookstore Day

8 AM, ongoing daily from April 27, 2024 until April 29, 2024.
Multiple locations
All Ages
Prizes given with purchase Bookstore hours vary

The San Diego Book Crawl is back for its 7th year with 13 participating bookstores! The Book Crawl lasts three days and stretches from Coronado to Del Mar, starting Saturday April 27, in conjunction with Independent Bookstore Day.

This year the SD Book Crawl announced Susan Lee as the official Author Ambassador.

Book Crawlers receive a Book Crawl ‘Passport’ at their first bookstore stop and receive a stamp in that passport when they spend at least $10 at any of the participating stores. The more stamps you collect, the more prizes you win. (While supplies last.)

Prizes are given out at the 1st, 3rd, 6th, 9th and 13th stamps.

This year, a new addition to the crawl is the shuttle service, where crawlers can sign up for a ticketed shuttle option.
