National Book Lovers Day is celebrated on August 9th every year.
The very first books used parchment or vellum (calf-skin) for the book pages.
The book covers were made of wood and often covered with leather.
Clasps or straps kept the books closed.
Public libraries appeared in the Middle Ages.
Public libraries often chained the books to a shelf or a desk to prevent theft.
My favorite book genre: Mystery. I've enjoyed reading books by William Kent Krueger, Preston & Childs and Janet Evanovich, to name a few.
