Happy Valentines Day! Did you know that Valentines Day is also International Book Giving Day? With few large and organized events, Book Giving Day is more of a grassroots movement all about sharing our Love of Reading on that very special day of Love each year — Valentines Day.
Valentines Day is a day dedicated to expressing our fondness and love of others — sweethearts, partners, family, friends, co-workers, classmates, neighbors and more. What better way to show someone how much you care than to gift them a book?
“How?” you ask? There are lots of ways. Wrap a book as a present and gift for someone special in your life. It’s Valentines Day, so lovingly tuck a red rose into the ribbons, if appropriate. Leave a copy of a book in a doctor’s or dentist’s waiting room for others to share. Donate gently-used books to your local school, library, hospital, senior center, homeless shelter or orphanage. Leave a book behind at a coffee shop or restaurant table. Gift a book or eBook thru Amazon or other online services in an email message for friends and loved ones in other areas of the country or world.
Books have the capacity to open new worlds of information and change someone’s life in so many ways. Here are Ten Reasons Why Books Are So Important. Books can also be revisited and enjoyed many times in a person’s lifetime. And can shamelessly be re-gifted to benefit another along the way!
This year, Little Red Bear and I have partnered with a group of wonderful authors to give away copies of our own books. I encourage you to tap on their names to visit these wonderful writers and their works.
