Hoorah! Calling all fellow book lovers! Our day had finally arrived! August 9 is marked as National Book Lovers Day and we take every opportunity to celebrate the printed word. Here are some ways you can get into the holiday spirit:
Visit Your Local Library
You cannot pass up free books and it doesn’t get better by going to your closest library. Also, take time to enjoy the quiet solitude of reading the latest new release right in the comfort of a library.
Reread Your Favorite Books
There is no better way to celebrate this great holiday by revisiting old friends that made you fall in love with reading in the first place.
Get That Bookshelf!
You can never have enough bookshelves. So do away with that guilt and get that bookcase you had your eye on!
Give the Gift of Reading
Whether passing along a book to a friend or reading a book to someone else, today is the perfect day to share along with your love of books with someone else.
Visit a Literary Place
Find those amazing literary places that bring you closer to your favorite authors.
Start a Book Club
You have always meant to start a book club. Today is the perfect time to do so! Book clubs are perfect opportunities to have invigorating conversations about books.
Contact Your Favorite Living Author
Show your appreciation and the impact your favorite author has had on your life by contacting them through Facebook, Twitter or good old fashioned mail.
Giving away your books? Heaven forbid! But there is no better feeling than passing down books to those who need them most.
Donate Money To A Literacy Foundation
Can’t part with the books? Why not donate money to a foundation that promotes the joys of reading? There are some amazing foundations out there that are doing great work, such as First Book, National Literacy Trust and Barbara Bush Foundation for Family Literacy.
