August 9th is Book Lovers Day! If the scent of a rare first edition book found in an old time book collection trips your trigger as much as a crisp, fresh book at the local supermarket…you might be a ‘Book Lover.” Why do some of us love books so much?
It’s because the very sight of a book can bring back memories and when you’re diving into a new book, you can often see the movie unfold in your mind’s eye. Reading as a child, enjoying the short stories, the long books and the ability to lose yourself into a story so powerful that at the end your asking yourself where to get the next book in the series.
While the day’s origins may be shrouded in mystery and rumor, the books themselves are not. Computers, tablets and most cell phones now have the ability to read books, making it that much easier to carry around a small library to enjoy not matter where you are…but for those that love pages, it’s about the ritual of turning each page that tickles us most.
Do you prefer reading on a tablet or are ya old school and like the feel of a book?
