Happy Book Lovers Day!
I think there is a holiday for everything, but as a librarian this is one I will gladly celebrate—Book Lovers Day. There is some disagreement over when this day is celebrated, August 9 or the first Saturday in November, but if you are a true book lover, you will enjoy celebrating it on both days. Book Lovers Day encourages you to find a place under a shady tree, by the poolside, on the deck, or in a cozy hammock and relax with a good book. If you fall asleep while reading, that’s okay. It’s all part of the relaxing benefits of being a book lover. Touching, holding, feeling, smelling…there’s nothing like reading a real book with pages you can turn!
