Ways to Celebrate National Book Lovers Day

From an early age, books have brought joy and pleasure to the majority of us readers. The sight of a book may bring back memories, whether it’s the aroma of a rare first edition book discovered in an old book collection or a crisp, new book from the local supermarket. Here are the ways to celebrate National Book Lover’s Day to all bookworms.

When is National Book Lovers Day?

Book Lovers Day is celebrated on August 9 every year. This is an unofficial holiday observed to encourage bibliophiles to celebrate reading and literature. People are advised to put away their smartphones and every possible technological distraction and pick up a book to read.

Ways to Celebrate National Book Lovers Day

1. Organize a book exchange

Organizing a book exchange is the perfect way to share your joy of reading with others while also including family and friends! This is a great opportunity for you and your friends and family to read something different from your ordinary books.

2. Treat yourself to a new book

Go out and reward yourself with a brand-new book! Although you may borrow books for free, occasionally it is great to buy a book or two for yourself. You may completely enjoy and care for it, and it would help expose oneself to a brand-new book genre and universe of writing.

3. Watch Book Adaptations

One great way to appreciate book reading is by watching Movies Based on Books. Here is a list of Awesome Books that Became Movies to binge-watch while reading the actual book.

4. Listen in

9. Donate

Parting is such precious pain, but there’s no greater pleasure than handing on a well-loved book. Look to see if there’s a Little Free Library in your town that you may gift some books to. You may also contribute donations to bookish charities: Book Industry Charity Foundation serves to support bookshops employees who are suffering financial trouble. Make a gift there!

10. Reading to children

You may spend Book Lovers Day reading kids’ favorite children’s books. You may also read to children at a local child center as a volunteer. You may read to them as well as perform for them, bringing the characters and their world to life. It will be a pleasant activity for both you and the kids to participate in, and it will encourage youngsters to begin reading at an early age.
