7 Ways To Celebrate Book Lovers Day on 9th August…
We love books. It’s no secret! So we are thoroughly looking forward to this coming Thursday!
The 9th August is Book Lovers Day. We thought it would be a nice idea to give you all a few ideas as to how to celebrate the day with friends and family.
Donate a book
If you’re like us, even though you love books, there are probably a few old books that you’ve grown out of that are gathering dust on your shelves. Do your books a favour and give them a new lease of life. Donate them to your school or local library, to a Children’s Home. Maybe even a Doctor’s Surgery waiting room or the Children’s Ward at your local hospital.
Re-read an old favourite
While doing the clear-out as suggested in the first idea, maybe you find an old favourite that you just can’t bring yourself to give away. Maybe it’s full of sentimentality. Maybe it was a special gift from a loved one? Make yourself cosy and enjoy re-reading your favourite book and the memories that flood back.
Research your favourite author
Do you have a favourite author? Does your child? Maybe it’s Julia Donaldson, Dr. Seuss, Roald Dahl, Megan McDonald or Rachel Renée Russell. Sit down with your child and set about finding out as much as you can about them. As my son would suggest…Google it on Facebook, he he!
Dress-up as your favourite character
This might take a bit of effort but could be a lot of fun. Maybe you have a rather extensive dressing up box/basket. If so, try dressing up as your favourite character.
Have a playdate book swap
Get your friends together and ask them to all bring an old book to swap. You get a new book to read for free and have fun with your friends at the same time! It’s a win win!
Visit your local library
What better day to take a trip to your local library than Book Lovers Day. Better still, if you’re not a member, join up! Enjoy the peace and quiet and the enjoyment of discovering hundreds of new books, all of which you can borrow for free!
Buy a book gift for someone
Give the gift of a book or a bookshop voucher to a loved one or just to someone who you think will enjoy it. Maybe your teacher or your babysitter? It will definitely bring a smile to their day and I bet you’ll feel good doing it too!
These are just a few simple ideas of how you can celebrate Book Lovers Day on 9th August. Maybe you have some other ideas you’d like to share in the comments below. We’d love to hear them!
Whatever you do, we hope you have fun doing it!
