According to a number of sources, September 6th is Read a Book Day, a web-page has this to say re the holiday:
"Break out your reading glasses and favorite mug of hot coffee, because it’s National Read a Book Day! Some people just can’t stop reading, but most of us tend to put reading on the back burner with other 'maybe later' activities like hitting the gym or cleaning the oven. Life can definitely get in the way of our reading time, but National Read a Book Day is the perfect opportunity to make some time in your life to read. Whether you’re a sci-fi fanatic, a non-fiction buff, or a not-so-often reader, there is a book out there just for you. This holiday literately reminds us that entertainment isn’t limited to what you can watch on a screen or hear through your speakers. Books can bring whole new worlds to life, not to mention shed light on world events and share perspectives on the human experience in a way that other mediums just can’t. In a world of increasing technology and screen-based communication, National Read a Book Day encourages us to switch off and turn the pages for a while."
I realize that I'm using "screen based communication" to present this news to you, but after you finish reading this post, I'm encouraging you to re-read your copies of my book series, Words In Our Beak.
If you haven't had a chance to purchase copies and live in NYC, you can head over to a bookstore on the UWS (book culture On Columbus) and get a copy (of volume one) which they have asked me to autograph.
Actually any book store is able to order volume one or volume two of Words In Our Beak, all you need to do is give them my name and the title; if they want the books' ISBN number, I am including them at the end of this entry.
As you undoubtedly know, Read a Book Day, can be celebrated anytime. Cam and I hope you will do so by reading and re-reading her books. The third and final volume of this series is complete...
... by late fall, it should be available wherever books are sold.
