Today, November 7, 2009 is National Bookstore Day. Over 100 independent bookstores are participating in this event. Publisher’s weekly started this program to increase foot traffic in bookstores which is down partly due to the economy and partly due to Internet booksellers like Amazon and e-Books.

Even though book sales are down there are popular book trends to watch. In fiction fantasy books, especially those with movie and tv show potential are all the rage. People are fascinated with the immortals and the undead. Vampires and lycans top the list. The Twillight series of books has become an extremely sucessful brand though I’m not sure it will overtake the Harry Potter series.
