NATIONAL BOOK LOVERS DAY – August 9

NATIONAL BOOK LOVERS DAY

National Book Lovers Day on August 9th harnesses all the excitement bibliophiles feel about books into one celebration. 

A day for all those who love to read, National Book Lovers Day encourages you to find your favorite reading place, a good book (whether it be fiction or non-fiction) and read the day away.

Bibliophile – a person who has a great appreciation for or collects books.

Step back in time
  • 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.

  • The books were fitted with clasps or straps.

  • Public libraries appeared in the Middle Ages.

  • Public libraries often chained the books to a shelf or a desk to prevent theft.

Moving forward

Along with several recent developments, book manufacturers use digital printing.  Book pages are printed using toner rather than ink.  As a result of digital printing, print-on-demand opens up a whole new realm of publishing. In this case, distributors don’t print the books until the customer places the order.

More and more, people read E-books. E-book (electronic book) refers to a book-length publication in digital form.  They are usually available through the internet. However, they can also be found on CD-ROM and other systems.  Read an E-book on a computer or via a portable book display device known as an e-book reader, such as a Reader, Nook or Kindle.
