Celebrate Book Lovers Day!

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.

Ft. Vancouver High School Library Media Center 18

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!

  1. I love cooking and reading – they go so well together. Currently I’m reading Good Fish: Sustainable Seafook Recipes from the Pacific Coas by Becky Selengut. Rand Simmons, State Librarian

    Well, speaking of reading cookbooks, I just finished The Acid Reflux Solution: A Cookbook and Lifestyle Guide for Healing Heartburn Naturally by Jorge E. Rodriguez, MD, with Susan Wyler, MPH, RD. Has some very interesting ideas, but I’m not sure I could live by all of them, since one of the prohibited foods is raw onions, and I practically LIVE on them! My absolute all-time favorite vegetable, cooked or raw.
