Book Lovers, Rejoice! April 23rd is World Book Day!

Do you love books? If you do, you definitely need to mark April 23rd on your calendar right now — it’s World Book Day!

Whether you have a knack for fantasy, sci-fi, romance novels, or you just can’t get enough of reading autobiographies of inspiring people, this is the perfect day for you to sit back, relax, and disconnect from reality with a good book. And don’t worry — you don’t have to be a bookworm at all to enjoy this fun day. For all we know, this could just be the motivation you need to ignite your passion for reading.

 

What’s in the Date?

April 23rd is a very significant date in the world of literature, which is why the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) designated it as World Book Day. It marks the death anniversaries of some of the world’s most renowned writers, including William Shakespeare, Inca Garcilaso de la Vega, and Miguel de Cervantes, all of whom died on April 23, 1616. The date also happens to be the birth dates of prominent authors such as Maurice Druon (April 23, 1918) and Haldor Kiljan Laxness (April 23, 1902).

 

What Usually Happens on This Day?

Since World Book Day’s mission is to encourage individuals of all ages to read, events such as book fairs and literary competitions are held in many parts of the globe. Bookmarks are distributed to the public, and many schools organize various activities for students to participate

Apart from encouraging people to get into the habit of reading, World Book Day is also an opportunity to pay tribute to the talented men and women behind our favorite books. The event also promotes the understanding of copyright laws, as it aims to protect the intellectual property of authors.

 

4 Ways to Observe World Book Day

While grabbing a book from your shelf is easily the best way to spend this holiday, there are tons of other activities you might want to consider doing. Here are four of them:

  • Try audiobooks.

Do you know what’s great about audiobooks? They allow you to do a chore while keeping you entertained at the same time! All you have to do is download an audiobook app on your phone or tablet, browse through hundreds of interesting titles from different categories, and pick one that sounds the most intriguing or interesting to you.

  • Stop by your favorite book shop.

World Book Day might be incomplete without a quick stop at your favorite bookstore. Check out the latest releases, or perhaps get to know an author you’re unfamiliar with by buying one of their books.

  • Read online.

So many e-books are readily available in the virtual world. You don’t even need to buy a Kindle or download any special application anymore. Some of the best sites that offer free books are Open Library, Project Gutenberg, and Google Books.

  • Donate old books to your local library.

How about clearing some space in your bookshelf by discarding books that no longer hold any importance to you? Give them a new home in your city’s public library. We assure you, they’ll be in good hands!
