Wednesday September 7, 2016 is Buy a Book Day.

“TV and movies have taken over our lives these days. That’s not to say that watching certain TV shows or movies is a waste of our time—there are many well-made, thought-provoking things to be watched. And of course, thanks to Kindle, carrying even multiple books around at the same time has become infinitely easier and more practical. Still, however, it is a bit sad how the the old-fashioned art of reading a regular paper book seems to be slowly fading away into the past. It sometimes seems as though children today do not even know the scent of an old book, a book that has touched the lives of so many, and how wonderful it can be to settle down on the couch with such a book on a rainy day and disappear into the world it creates. Buy a Book Day was created for the purpose of reminding people how much joy simple black print on a white background can bring when it awakens your imagination and transports you far away.

Buy a Book Day was created in 2012 to educate people to the importance of books to our culture and civilization as a whole. It is inarguable that books have been one of the greatest contributors to the advancement of the human race, by moving the hearts of many over the ages, stimulating their imaginations and helping them see the world in an entirely different light. Books have also served the simple but vital purpose of passing knowledge down from generation to generation. The creators of Buy a Book Day want nothing more than for people take a moment to truly appreciate books and their numerous roles in the human experience.

The best way to celebrate this day is to buy a book. Buy a Book Day does not require for you to spend excessive amounts of money. All you have to do to enjoy it is invest a small amount of money in a book, either first- or second-hand and then soak up all of the knowledge and wisdom in it.” ^sPm – #sharpharmade From ‘Days of the Year’ http://ow.ly/i/mNwDV
