Hey ya book lovers … Seems like today is your day, since its National READ A BOOK Day. Time to get that great book of yours and read it in honor of this day. On August 9th, we all celebrate National Book Lovers day, while today is the actual reading day.
Reading improves memory and concentration as well as reduces stress. Books are an inexpensive entertainment, education and time machine, too!
The first celebration of Read a Book Day was around the year of 2000, and was an idea of a librarian who actually wanted to encourage youngsters to read a book. On this day, it is not compulsory to read a whole book, but it serves as an inspiration for people to actually read a section of their most favorable book, or to read with their children, to donate a book, or to organize a book reading party with family and friends.
So take this opportunity and enjoy a good book as a time for relaxation and calmness for yourself and your mind.
As Mason Cooley said: “Reading gives us someplace to go when we have to stay where we are.”
