Hello my gorgeous book worm buddies!
I’ve already made it easy for you, but guess what?!
I love following all the awareness days (using a nifty awareness days website) as there are some truly weird and wonderful days out there that people are encouraged to celebrate!
No seriously, did you know that September is apparently Organic September month and contains National Spa Week (10th) and International Talk Like a Pirate Day (19th)?
Also, more relevantly themed, September is home to International Literacy Day (8th) and Roald Dahl Day (13th).
But today is so what are you waiting for? Get out there and read a book. A whole one. What do you mean you work full time, have two children and need 3 weeks to read that 500+ page door-stopper?
No excuses! Read it today and message me at 3am to tell me how tired you are!
OK… don’t do those things unless it’s a very small (i.e. children’s) book. I don’t particularly relish the idea of getting angry messages in my inbox because encouragement went wrong!
One website conducted a survey (because who doesn’t love a survey?) and these are the sexy results.
Sexy Disclaimer: All graphs are taken from the National Today website and aren’t done by me. This should be obvious because there is no way I could produce this level of quality graphage.
It seems that the average responder of this survey will be opening up their mystery book which they have purchased as a physical copy and will read this in bed next to the pile of the 4 other books they will read this year.
The Gerry responder of this survey will be opening up her fantasy book which she has purchased as a physical copy and will read this in bed next to her cat and the leaning tower of books that she will try (and fail) to read this year.
How do your responses hold up against this survey?
Right, I’m off to continue reading the current book I’m on which is this one…
And my ‘confession’ is that I need to get more exercise and so I’m going to be reading this at home as I walk on the treadmill. Yep. I’m trying to combine something I hate with something I love to make the something I hate more fun.
