National Book Lovers Day



August 9 is National Book Lovers Day. I think we should extend that and make it at least Book Lovers Week, or maybe have August be Book Lovers Month! What do you think?

There definitely should be time set aside for children to read if they can, or be read to if they are too young to read, each day. It's so important for children to develop that love of reading when they are young.

Take time to read some books today,
a restful break from work and play.
Books are great for learning and fun,
so be a book lover and grab a good one!

That poem at the end is very good.

As the education tipster says: "Children first learn to read so they can read to learn"

Count me in for Book Lovers Week or can it be the whole month of August?

Since there are no other major holidays in August it would be great if this could become a big one. Maybe next year you can start spreading the word ahead of time and we can all join in.

it is a rare day for me that I do not read a book, reading is my number one favorite thing to do, above email and blogging by a mile.
