About Read a Book Day

Date When Celebrated: Read a Book Day is always observed on September 6

Read a Book Day is today. Take time out of your busy life and relax with a good book. Cozy up on a chair, indoors or out. It doesn’t matter where you read that book, as long as you can do so in a comfortable manner. If you doze off while reading a book, we won’t tell anyone.

Reading is invaluable. We need to be able to read for countless things in our daily life. This hobby is a relaxing, fun-filled activity. And it is enjoyed practically anywhere. Reading is a great lifetime hobby. It offers so many positive attributes. Books are relaxing and therapeutic. It’s educational. It’s entertaining. And, a whole lot of other good things, too.

Books take us on fantastic voyages. They teach us history, offer facts, provide instruction and guidance, and “Who done it” suspense.  Books take us into outer space, and into the world of fantasy. And, some books are written to scare the daylights out of us. Of course, our choice of books is personal. If we want to be scared out of our wits, it’s our choice. 

If you have young children or elderly people in your home, take the time to read a book to them today. It is a wonderful time to bond with them and it creates pleasant, lasting memories.

How to Celebrate Read a Book Day

  • Read a book today. Select any book, any genre.
  • Buy a new book.
  • Visit the library.
  • Donate books you’ve already read.
