Book Lovers Day is celebrated on August 9 every year. This is an unofficial holiday observed to encourage bibliophiles to celebrate reading and literature.
We advise everyone to put away their smartphones and possible technological distractions and pick up a book to read.
Here are five ways you can celebrate Book Lover’s Day in 2021:
We’ve all got our favourite book, whether it’s one we read with our parents during childhood or the coming-of-age pageturner that helped us find our feet in life. What better way to show your love for books than to read a book that helped you fall in love with reading?
If you’re an avid reader, you may have built up quite a collection over time. Book collections can spiral out of control, so if you feel like you could do a clear out, get sorting through your bookshelves and pass on the books, you don’t read anymore.
Why not treat yourself by buying or lending a new book? If you have kids, it’s a brilliant opportunity to show them the wonders of reading and explain why it’s so important to you – you can even treat them to a book!
If you do declutter your bookshelf, you can get cash for your old books with We Buy Books; all you need to do is download our app and scan your barcodes, package your items, get your free postage label and take your items to a drop-off point or arrange a collection; it’s easy!
