Book Lovers Day

Thursday, August 09, 2012

emoticonBook Lovers Day emoticon

When : August 9th and/or first Saturday in November.

Book Lovers Day encourages you to find a place in the shade to relax with a good book.

Book reading is a great hobby. It's an important one, too. Employers look for it on resumes. Reading is educational, informative, and relaxing. It makes us both smarter, and happier people.

Book Lovers Day is a great day to celebrate. Just grab an interesting book, find a quiet, cozy place, and crack open the cover. Celebrating Book Lovers Day in August is pleasurable on the deck, under a shady tree, poolside, or in a cozy hammock. If you fall asleep while reading, that's okay. It's all part of the relaxing benefits of being a book lover.


The Origin of Book Lovers Day:
Our research did not find the creator, or the origin of this day.

There is some disagreement over when this day is celebrated. The vast majority of sites list it on August 9th. A smaller number of sites have it recorded on the first Saturday in November. If you are a true book lover, you will enjoy celebrating it on both days.

Localized organizations and groups have declared "Book Lover" days on various other dates.

    How strange: We just came home from picking up some books on a porch. I joined freecycle.org and a lady left a huge bag of John Grisham and other books on her porch for me!!
My passion is reading!
