Book Lovers Day is that unofficial holiday all about sharing stories and reminding ourselves of the titles that inspire and bring us joy. Taking the time out of the day to read and lose ourselves in a great book is what brings us new ideas and helps us stay engaged, in touch and interested in life. These golden moments of down time are rare and precious, but should be acted out more often, as this is what feeds the rest of our lives.
