it’s National Book Lovers’ Day!

August 9 has been designated National Book Lovers’ Day. bibliophiles and librarians of the world, unite and take over!

Chicago-based blogger Kelly Konrad (aka “LitzyDitz”) cites 9 reasons why she loves books, ranging from being conversation starters and instant sources of entertainment to the practicality of portability and being calorie-free (there is no guilt associated with reading a book as opposed to scarfing down a Dairy Queen Blizzard). all in all, plenty of reasons to enjoy this past-time whether for leisure or education.

although i work in a non-traditional library setting (media as opposed to books), i am still an avid print reader (the ad campaign below has been enticing reluctant readers to visit their local library more often since 1987).
