FYI: It's National Book Lovers Day

National Book Lovers Day is celebrated on August 9th every year.

Fun Facts:

  • 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.
