Oh, Happy Day!!

Today is National Book Lovers Day! (Still no Google Doodle. What's up, Google?)


How will you celebrate? Here are some suggestions:

  • Well, obviously, read a book! Or, if you're me, three at a time...
  • Visit your local library. If you don't have a card, get one. It's free! If you visit regularly and appreciate your library, consider joining the Friends. Support your local library!
  • Support libraries nationally, too! You can visit the ALA's site and Take Action for Libraries!
  • If you've borrowed a book more than three times from your library and still can't wait to read it again - go buy the book! Support your authors and your local bookstores! 
  • Contact your favorite authors and let them know how much you appreciate their work! You can many on Twitter or Facebook or Tumblr or Reddit or [insert social media here]. You can also find physical addresses to contact them through snail-mail! 
  • Give a book away! If you're celebrating today, chances are pretty good you have a lot of books around, and you know someone somewhere that would love one of them. 
  • Find your nearest Little Free Library! How far away is it? Too far? Consider setting one up in your neighborhood!
  • Eat cake!


There are probably tons of other ways to celebrate. Me? I'll be reading. I'd be doing that, anyway - but, today, I'll read them with extra enthusiasm.
