National Read a Book Day 2020

Hello, hope you're all having a lovely day :) 

As today is National Read a Book Day, we'd love to hear what book you will be picking up and reading today, or what your favourite book, or series of books, is. Looking forward to hearing from you. Below is a little more about the day and some super quotes about reading.

National Read a Book Day is celebrated on Sept. 6 every year, and is observed to encourage people to read books of their choice. While this is not a public holiday, many people mark this day by picking their favorite book and spending the day reading it.

Here are some inspiring quotes about reading

1. "I hope everyone that is reading this is having a really good day. And if you are not, just know that in every new minute that passes you have an opportunity to change that." — Gillian Anderson

2. "Maybe this is why we read, and why in moments of darkness we return to books: to find words for what we already know." — Alberto Manguel

3. "Children should learn that reading is a pleasure, not just something that teachers make you do in school." — Beverly Cleary

4. "A book lying idle on a shelf is wasted ammunition. Like money, books must be kept in constant circulation... A book is not only a friend, it makes friends for you. When you have possessed a book with mind and spirit, you are enriched. But when you pass it on you are enriched threefold." — Henry Miller 

5. “If one cannot enjoy reading a book over and over again, there is no use in reading it at all.” ― Oscar Wilde
