And a very, very Happy Book Lovers Day to each and every one of you!
The 9th day of August, every single year, is officially National Book Lovers Day.
How cool is that?
Finally I’m rewarded for all those years of having my nose buried in a book. (but, sadly, it’s not a paid holiday) — we should work on that fellow book lovers.
Books are my passion, my love affair, have been and always will be, my friend.
They are my escape from my own troubles. They teach me the basics of just about anything I could possibly need to know. They transport me out of the now into the vast reaches of my imagination.
Each book is… personal. Some I will love with a passion and revisit often, other are passing fancies and even those that I should have tossed on the trash pile (but couldn’t bring myself to actually do) have shown me what I don’t like.
I honestly cannot imagine my life without a book in my hand. Yeah, really.
So Happy Book Lovers Day to all my fellow book devourers – go treat yourself to a new one… just because.
