Adult Read-In

June 30 @ 8:00 pm - July 1 @ 5:00 am

Calling all book lovers! Bring your pajamas, blankets, pillows, and TBR pile to Lit. on Fire Used Books for our insanely popular adult read-in! You know you’ve always wanted to stay up all night in a bookstore reading, perusing, and connecting with other bibliophiles. Challenge accepted, yes?

Closing time is 8 pm, but that’s when the real magic will begin! The evening will feature several hours of silent reading, breaks for discussion and general camaraderie, and I will even have a cake so we can all celebrate three years of Lit. on Fire Used Books joyful existence! Come when you want to, stay as short or as long as you’d like, but please note that the doors WILL be locked at 10 pm for silent reading to begin.

Suggested donation is $5 per person, but pizza and coffee will be provided free of charge. You are also welcomed, even encouraged, to bring snacks and drinks, either for yourself or to share. Bring your own books (BYOB) or pick a title or three from our curated selection to hunker down with for the night. This event will be 21+ though, so do leave the kids at home or with a sitter.

Please note that sleeping is NOT ALLOWED, all socializing needs to be during breaks only out of respect for others, and the event WILL END PROMPTLY AT 5 AM. (I have to get some sleep eventually, too.) When the event is over, you don’t have to go home, but you can’t stay here, no matter how much I love you. ♥
