Books enliven our imaginations, improve our vocabulary, challenge our capacity to empathize, teach us knew things, and generally make us better people.
Did you know America has a PLETHORA of holidays that celebrate reading? One of many reasons I love this country.
Here are some literary holidays you too may be interested in adding to your calendar for an excuse to keep reading all year long:
Fourth Wednesday in January – Library Shelfie Day: Founded by the renowned New York Public Library. Participants arrange their book collection on a shelf, snap a picture and share on social media.
February 14 – Library Lovers Day: Honor your favorite library, librarian or bookworm.
