National Book Lovers Day

A day to find a comfortable spot, make sure you have ample fluids on hand, cool ones are likely best, and enjoy reading some of your favorite stuff. A nice way to head into the weekend?

It's also National Veep Day - which recognizes the succession plan of the President of the United States. The day also acknowledges the one president who was neither elected vice president nor president – Gerald Ford.

    I've never thanked you or commented on this - but I find your national days to be very interesting.

    I comment to my daughter often that it is so and so day.

    Anyway, thanks brotha.

    you are most welcome. I've kind of enjoyed doing it, especially through this interminable off-season.

    It's the thread I look for every morning. Now you can't beat any day spent reading a good book.

    Fortunate that my mom raised us to love books and reading. She is still a substitute teacher at 83 years old.

    instead of movies tonight I'll sit down and knock out a few chapters

    currently going through a book on Theodore Roosevelt and re-reading the wise man's fear.

    From the scent of a rare first edition book found in an old time book collection, to a crisp, fresh book at the local supermarket, the very sight of a book can bring back memories. Reading as a child, enjoying the short stories, the long books and the ability to lose yourself in a story so powerful that at the end your asking yourself where to get the next book in the series. This is for the reader in all of us, the celebration of Book Lovers Day!
