Love is in the Air at Whitelam Books Bookstore Romance Day

Saturday August 19

Reading, MA — When she opened Whitelam Books in 2017, Liz Whitelam dreamed that one day her little bookstore would be the location of a marriage proposal. Suffice to say, she is a romantic. So every year she looks forward to participating in Bookstore Romance Day, a celebration of romance writers and readers. This year’s celebration is on Saturday, August 19. Whitelam Books will be open 10 – 5:30, and all customers who purchase a romance novel will receive a rose and a free love poem (while supplies last). 

Romance readers are invited to pop by and pick up their next great romance novel. Couples are invited to enjoy a unique, fun date together. Bring your love to Whitelam Books on Saturday August 19, peruse the romance section, select something delightful, and enjoy a free rose and love poem to read together when you get home. 

Everyone has a little romance in them. Come to Whitelam Books on Saturday, August 19, to find yours. “Who knows?” jokes owner Liz Whitelam. “Maybe we’ll finally get that marriage proposal we’ve been hoping for.” 

Whitelam Books is a local independent bookstore offering fun, free events to build a community of readers and writers throughout the year. To learn more, follow Whitelam Books on social media, call the store at 781-779-1833, or visit
