Did you grow up being a fan of Star Wars? Now’s your chance to reminisce about all the great characters and movies, because Chapters/Indigo and DK Canada are getting together to support the Indigo For the Love of Reading Foundation. From today until the 6th of May, for every Star Wars book that is purchased, a donation will be made.
ABOUT THE LOVE OF READING PROGRAM
We passionately believe that when a child has a book put in their hands it changes their life forever. With the support of Indigo customers and employees the Indigo Love of Reading Foundation puts books into the hands of Canadian children. To do date Love of Reading has committed over $12 million to more than 650 high-needs elementary schools across the country so children can develop a love of reading, unleash their dreams and fulfil their potential. For more information about the Foundation visit, loveofreading.org
I can testify that the range of Star Wars books put out by DK Canada are spectacular! Whether you’re a fan of the original Star Wars movies or the latest one (or all of them), or if you like Star Wars characters dressed up as Legos, there is a book by DK Canada out there. As always, the Star Wars Character Encyclopedia is full of vividly coloured pictures, great text and a hard cover.
Each character in the book has some basic information in a little box (see above), along with a full-colour photo and some other information.
Want to talk to someone about the movies but they’re clueless about certain characters? Whip out this book and show them who you’re talking about. This book is regularly priced at $18.99 but is on sale for only $13.99 since DK Canada has the Star Wars books on sale for 30% off for a limited time only.
There are a few promotions going on to get you even more excited about Star Wars this month. Today (May 4th) several Chapters stores in Canada will be having a party and there will be people dressed up in Star Wars costumes. Here in Calgary, the Chapters Shawnessy will be celebrating.
If you’re in to dressing up at Princess Leia or any other character, or don’t feel like dressing up at all—take a picture of yourself or a loved one reading a Star Wars book for a chance to win a $200 prize package of books from DK Canada. If you post your pics on the DK Canada Facebook page or tweet them out using hashtag #DKmay4th, a donation will be made to the Love of Reading Foundation. Details and entry form can be found on the DK Canada Star Wars page.
I received a copy of the above mentioned Star Wars book. I was not compensated in any other way.
