Wairarapa Bookshop Hop

Wairarapa Bookshop Hop

Booksellers of the Wairarapa join together to celebrate NZ Bookshop Day with a Wairarapa wide Bookshop Hop.

Collect an official Bookshop Hop map from any of the participating stores, receive a stamp on your map for each purchase on the day and go in the grand prize draw to win bookshop vouchers. 

The first of its kind in New Zealand, organiser Millie Blackwell of Mrs Blackwell's Village Bookshop in Greytown was inspired by an event in California where knitting stores get together for a Yarn Store Hop every spring.

New Zealand Bookshop Day is an initiative created by membership association Booksellers NZ. Participating bookshops:


  • Almo's Books
  • Take Note




  • The Martinborough Bookshop
