National Book Lovers Day is Today! Aug. 9

Book Cover Art
Always a special place in my heart for this book and this cover
There are days for so many things I simply have no interest in - like National Polka Day, Play in the Sand Day, Spumoni Day, etc. I'm not making these up, someone actually went through the trouble of making days for these things. To be clear, I have no problem with these things, I just don't really see why they need whole days devoted to them.

This is why I'm happy to know about August 9th - National Book Lovers Day!

I will not lie. When Kindles first came out, I was all sorts of against them. I was determined not to loose the joy I get from smelling old pages, getting lost for hours in book stores, and turning back covers of tacky books so no one on the subway could see what I was reading.

However, I quickly learned that Kindles didn't mean I had to loose what I loved, it just meant that I could be sure that I was NEVER without a book. I could do both printed books and digital books. Be all bi-readual... or something.

Anyhooo, back to National Book Lovers Day. Celebrate your love of books tomorrow by hustling to your local bookstore and snapping up something you've always wanted to read OR checking out some of the great sites offering free eBooks like the fabulous ManyBooks.net and Project Gutenberg!

Happy Reading Everyone!!
