One of the greatest pleasures in life is opening a book and diving into an adventure that takes you to another place. Whether you are reading a new book or one of your favorites, there is nothing that can compare to that feeling.
There are so many ways to celebrate Read A Book Day. If you have kids, let them choose their favorite picture book and read it together. You can gather a group of your friends for a book club. Go to your local library and find a new Mystery, Sci-Fi, or Romance novel. The possibilities are endless!
It doesn’t matter what kind of book you choose, all that matters is that you take some time for yourself today to read!
