Just another great example of why Independent Publishing rocks my world!
The concept is familiar to us:
Subway, Rita's, too-numerous-to-name coffee shops - they reward their loyal customers with a punch card. Every time you show up and make a purchase, you get a punch. Fill up your card and you get a free drink or ice cream, or your next purchase at a discount.
But the application is entirely new:
Graywolf Press, Coffee House Press and Milkweed, along with Rain Taxi Review of Books and Loft Literary Center, have joined forces in the Twin Cities to offer a Literary Punch Card.
After its Sept 14th launch, attend any literary event at Magers & Quinn in Uptown Minneapolis, and Common Good Books and Micawber's in St Paul, and a present your card for a punch. Buy their featured book and get another punch. When you fill your card, you're rewarded with a $15 gift card.

Chalk another one up for the indies, ya'll! And now go out and support them!
