4 Great Ways to Celebrate National Read A Book Day
On September 6th, Share the Joy of the Written Word
Bookworms and bibliophiles always look forward to a particular day each year to celebrate their love for the written word. The 6th of September is considered an unofficial holiday for book lovers all across the nation. It’s National Read a Book Day!
This special day gives book lovers the perfect excuse to share their love for books to their families, friends, co-workers, and neighbors. National Read a Book Day is also a great time to share and recommend great works from well-known authors and new ones who are starting to make a name for themselves in the field of literature.
National Read a Book Day is different from National Book Lovers Day, which is celebrated every 9th of August. While that holiday honors book lovers, National Read a Book Day aims to promote great books to encourage a love for reading.
Why Is Reading Important?
Developing the mind and improving your vocabulary are just two of the many great reasons why people should cultivate the habit of reading. Here are the other reasons:
- It helps you think creatively.
You don’t have to hop on a plane to travel places when the pages of a book can take you as far away as outer space. It sparks your imagination and makes you think of infinite possibilities.
- It helps you de-stress.
Reading helps you calm down from the frenetic pace of life as you immerse your mind in the stories found in the pages of a book.
- It helps you to concentrate.
Reading can help you train your mind to focus properly and be fully present in the moment.
- It helps you find inspiration.
If you’ve read a book and found yourself fully relating to a character who has shown great courage in the face of challenges, this would inspire you to show the same courage as you face your own trials in life.
How to Celebrate National Read a Book Day
Whether you’re a long-time book lover or someone who is only now discovering the joy of reading, National Read a Book Day provides opportunities for you to deepen your passion for reading.
Here are four things you can do to celebrate the holiday:
1. Try something different.
You may have your favorite authors and genres, but it never hurts to try something different from time to time. Check out the works of a new author. Veer away from your regular sci-fi fare and try reading a true crime or mystery novel for a change. There are plenty of topics to explore and thousands of pages to immerse yourself in.
2. Recommend a good book.
If you have a favorite book that has made a lasting impact on you, the best thing you could do is share it with a friend. Make a list of your favorite books and post them on a blog. Share snaps of your go-to tomes on social media and use the hashtag #NationalReadABookDay. You can similarly check out recommendations from other book lovers and give them a try.
3. Start a book club.
National Read a Book Day is the perfect time to start a book club with your friends. Find a book that catches your common interests and set a coffee date for your discussion after you read the book. This is a great way to bond with other book lovers.
4. Devote time for reading.
The sad reality is that no matter how much you love to read, you may not always find time for it since you’re mostly preoccupied with work at the office and house chores as well. Make a pact with yourself and devote a few minutes of your day to reading — starting on National Read a Book Day this September 6th.
