It's pitch day for our winter 2024 Read With Us selection, The Poisonwood Bible by…
As you may surmise from the title, today is National Book Lover’s Day. It’s a day where you are encouraged to settle into your favorite place to read with a good book and then read the day away.
Sounds lovely, right?
I, of course, have to work. BUT I work in a library so even if I can’t read the day away, I can spend the day amongst loads of books. It’s a lovely thing to be, in the words of Jimmy Buffett (from the song Love in the Library), surrounded by stories, surreal and sublime.
If I had the choice, though, I’d spend the morning reading in the shade on my deck, the afternoon reading in my favorite chair in our living room, and the evening reading in bed. I’d drink coffee and iced water and wine. I’d wear my favorite softest clothes and prop myself with the comfiest of pillows. I’d start the day reading my current book, Little Monsters, but I’d likely finish that by lunch time so I’d move on to No Two Persons.
