Today, August 9, is said to be Book Lovers Day. I can’t find out much about the origins or history of this “holiday,” but it’s all over the web, so it must be true, right?! ☺ Also, I heard it on my local NPR station this morning.
I thought I’d celebrate the occasion by posting this picture I took in the Ft. Vancouver High School Library Media Center a while back. The picture features one of my favorite book quotes, which happens to be from poet Emily Dickinson:
There is no frigate like a book to take us lands away.
I love books, and I love reading, so this is definitely MY day. I hope it’s your day, too!
If anyone knows anything more about Book Lovers Day, please feel free to post a comment.
Happy Book Lovers Day, everyone!
