Avid Coloring Contest


Time to color!

The coloring book craze may have peaked a few years ago, but we've seen a resurgence in people's interest in coloring since it's a fabulous way to get creative while reducing stress levels. (Might we suggest listening to an audiobook from our bookshop while coloring?)

Illustrator Julie Jarema* has drawn this adorable portrait of our bookshop and is making this coloring sheet available free in two ways: you can download it below and print it out on your own, or you can look forward to getting a paper copy with any web order placed on or after September 1.

To celebrate, WE ARE HAVING A COLORING CONTEST! 


Details

Who can enter:

anyone

How to enter:

color any way you want (don't forget to write a unique message on the chalkboard) and share a photo of your finished product with us in one of two ways: 

  1. 1. post it online @avidbookshop on social media
  2. 2. drop it off or mail it to our store so we can put it on display in our window before THURSDAY, OCTOBER 15, 2020. - Mailed entries will be displayed on our Five Points shop window for all to see when they take advantage of our contactless pick up.

Our judges will choose 3 winning entries by evaluating which finished products make their hearts soar. That's right--whatever entry sparks the most joy from each age group (age groups listed below) will win.

The prizes:

  • for ages 3-7: a book bundle if you're local to the Athens area, a $10 gift card if you're a long-distance customer
  • For ages 8-12:  a book bundle if you're local to the Athens area, a $10 gift card if you're a long-distance customer
  • For ages 13-113:  a 3-month membership to our brand new COLORING CLUB  (this is the prize regardless of where you live). 

 

*Julie is also one of our booksellers and the manager of our subscriptions program!
