Writers, readers (young and old), bibliophiles and all of you who carry a book in their purse or back pocket no matter where you go, celebrate Book Lover’s Day on August 9 by calling in sick and spending the day – yes, the whole day – curled up with a good book. You know you’ve always want to leave reality and its obligations behind to spend the day reading in bed, on the couch, in the grass or in a hammock. Ok, you don’t have to read all day, so if you can bear to tear yourself away, you should start a book club with your friends or head to the book store to buy one or two (or three or four…) new books. If you have a book lover in your life, celebrate their passion for reading by giving them a new book.
