Book lover’s day’s today?

Book-ish bookshop book van, Crickhowell, Wales

9th August is apparently Book lover’s day, according to some anonymous and apparently self-appointed committee who decide these things.

This is despite the fact that there is no end of special days for bibliophile and bibliomanes.

World Book Day is celebrated worldwide (early March in the UK and Ireland — aimed at younger readers — 23rd April for Catalunya and most of the rest of the world) and Independent Bookstore Day on the last Saturday in April for the US. There are even weeks dedicated to the acquisition of books, for instance Independent Bookshop Week in June for the UK.

As far as I’m concerned every day is Book Lover’s Day: remember, giving or receiving a book is not just for Christmas…

Still, today is an excuse to post some gratuitous photos of books, more books and many books.

    1. Ooh, Camelot, haven’t played that in ages! A funny old board game, a bit like chess and yet nothing like, with knights on horseback figures and men-at-arms.

      As you know, I posted most of these on Twitter — in monochrome — under the hashtag #librarylife, so thanks for accepting the challenge! Enjoyed your take on this. 🙂
