National Book Lovers Day

Does today feel any different to you? Maybe it should.book_shelf

Today, August 9, is National Book Lovers Day, a time to celebrate all things books. For those of us roaming around blogdom, that’s a very good thing.

As you celebrate this special day, try something a little different with your reading. Take a chance on a book that is out of the genre you normally read, select a book on impulse rather than on reading the blur or a review, and if you’ve never listened to an audio book – give a try, you never know you might find a new way to enjoy books.

What are you reading today? What book would you like to read that you don’t have in your TBR stack? Thanks for stopping by.


  1. Thanks for publicizing the day, although I love books 365/24/7. I'm reading a thriller anthology edited by Lee Child (First Thrills) and a time travel romance, (A Moment in Time) by Deb Stover, and a mystery for book club, Silver Lies by Ann Parker. On my NOOK, I'm reading Through a Dark Mist by Marsha Canham.

  2. Mason - I'm with Terry; I'm a book lover no matter what day it is :-). I've just been reminded of the work of Brazilian author Patricia Melo. So I'm sque-ezing some of her writing into my TBR.

  3. Oh man, in Canada it is National Artichoke Appreciation Day - nah, it isn't - or if it is, I don't know about it. In my heart - every darn day and night is designed for appreciating books. What am I reading - Rosie by Anne Lamott, The Whistling Woman by A.Y. Byant.

  4. Terry, I'm with you on loving books 365/24/7. Sounds like you're reading a nice selections of genres. They all sound interesting. Ah, more books to check out. :)

    Margot, you said it - book lover no matter what day it is. Now you've given me another author to check on too.

    Jan, oh my National Artichoke Appreciation Day LOL. Well, I guess we could eat artichokes while we read. :) Two more interesting books for me to check on. My list just keeps growing.

  5. I celebrate my love of books everyday and right now I'm reading Die Buying by Laura DiSilverio.

  6. A day to celebrate my favourite things - yay!!! :)

    I've downloaded Anita Laydon Millers's A Scary Good Book, but haven't started it yet - soon! :)

  7. It's been National Book Reading Week for me, as I've been sorting and shelving books and it's no easy task. Enjoy your reading today!

  8. sadly the only books I seem to be reading lately are dog and cat books...not that there is anything wrong with that but I spend so much time reading those there is hardly time for anything else!

  10. Hi Mason, thanks for posting about this day. I'm reading several research books and one gaslight mystery.

  11. Hi Mason,
    What a great day! I posted about it as well - - although every day for me is book lovers day! :)

    I am currently reading "Tout Sweet" by Karen Wheeler, a humorous memoir about moving to the French countryside.
