Book Lovers Day

 


Happy Book Lovers Day, everybody!

I never knew that we had our own day before stumbling upon something about this special day about ten minutes ago. I've done a minimum of digging, but I have to admit that I'm still a little confused about what it is all about, really. From what I've seen, book lovers are supposed to sit around in comfortable places all day long and read a lot of pages from the books they love. 

Sort of like what I've been doing every day since mid-March when COVID-19 became the single most dominating thing in my life? Well, OK then, that's exactly what I'll do today.

And, as usual, no one knows what the accepted spelling of the day is. In five minutes of browsing, I've seen:
  • Book Lovers Day
  • Book Lovers' Day, and 
  • Book Lover's Day.
You decide. Personally, I'm going with Book Lovers Day, since it's all about book lovers like us. Have a great day,  my fellow book lovers.

  1. Wow, our very own day! Would that UK TV channels realised how many people are readers... more than ever now... and reflected this interest in their schedules.

    1. US television is much the same, but I'm finding dozens of "literary movies" on Amazon Prime to watch. That's become my go-to place for that kind of thing as they do a much better job of that than Netflix or the big movie channels manage to do.

    1. Apparently this is not the first year that the day was so designated, only the first time that I noticed it. :-)

    1. It really didn't change a thing most of us were going to do anyway, I suspect; especially this year.
