Celebrate National Book Lovers Day

Today, August 9th is National Book Lovers Day. The printed word has fascinated people for centuries. Dedicating a day to those who love to read is a great way to honor the written word. Are you wondering how to celebrate National Book Lovers Day? Try any or all of the following ideas.

Ways to Celebrate National Book Lovers Day

According to the dictionary, a bibliophile is a person who collects or has a great love for books. Does this sound true for you? For avid readers, an entire day celebrating the love for books is ideal.

Read A Book

Sit, relax, and read. If you do not have time to read numerous chapters, read a small portion of the book on your lunch hour or before cooking dinner.

Reread Your Favorite Book

Is there a past book calling to you to read again? Find the old favorite on your bookshelf. Many book lovers find rereading a book is comparable to visiting an old friend.

Go to the Library

Do you need a book to read? Head to your local library.

  • Browse the different books available.
  • Search for books on the library computer.
  • Most libraries display new arrivals.
  • Ask the librarian about any new books within your favorite genre.
  • Join the library’s reading group for an opportunity to discuss new reading material.

Go to Your Favorite Book Store

If you lucky enough to have an independent book store in your town, go and browse the aisles for something new to read.

  • Spend your lunch hour or an afternoon amongst the stacks of books.
  • Learn about local authors.
  • Grab a cup of tea or coffee and enjoy the atmosphere.

Listen to an Audiobook

Listen to an audiobook during the morning commute, gym workout, or working around the house. Audiobook narrators use different voices and sound to bring the story alive.

Support a Book Lover

Do you know someone who loves books more than you? Or do you want to encourage younger minds to enjoy the endless possibilities of storylines? Support a book lover by purchasing a book as an impromptu gift. Or buy a gift card or certificate for the local bookstore.

How do you want to spend National Book Lovers Day? Go outdoors, relax in a hammock, and enjoy your favorite book.
