Connecticut Book Crawl PASSPORT


SLOW & STREADY SUMMER: If you can’t make it to all 17 stores in one weekend but still want to visit all the shops, this year for the first time we are offering a Slow & Steady Prize for finishing the Passport by September 5th.  One (1) person will be drawn at random to win a Slow & Steady Prize of a $20 gift card from EACH store ($300 value).



Some rules:

  • Participants must visit ALL participating bookstores between April 30-September 5 to qualify for Slow & Steady Prize drawing.  

  • No purchase is required to participate.

  • Each participating bookstore will issue an original stamp/sticker in the passport during your visit.

  • Upon completion of the passport, a bookseller at the final stop will review the stamps and confirm your eligibility to win. You will be asked to fill out a form with your contact information, which will be used to mail Passport Prizes and for entry into the Grand Prize or Slow & Steady Prize drawings.

  • Participants can finish their passport at ANY of the stores and are welcome to keep their passports.
