Aug. 9 is Book Lover's Day, an annual holiday that celebrates books and the people who love to read them.
While the origins of this annual holiday are unknown, today is the perfect opportunity to curl up with a good book (or Nook!) Books not only transport the reader to another time or place; they also educate, inform and inspire imagination. Whether you prefer a good, old-fashioned who-done it, intense thriller, or romantic romp from days gone by, reading is just plain fun!
While advances in technology allows book lovers to access books in a whole new way, today is the perfect opportunity to skip that never ending to-do list and finally hunker down with that book you’ve been hearing so much about. Book Lover’s Day is also a great way to encourage children to read – right before the school season begins.
Today is also National Polka Day and Betty Boop's Birthday.
