“Any time women come together with a collective intention, it’s a powerful thing. Whether it’s sitting down making a quilt, in a kitchen preparing a meal, in a club reading the same book, or around the table playing cards, or planning a birthday party, when women come together with a collective intention, magic happens.” – Phylicia Rashad
History of Book Lovers Day
The creator or founder of Book Lovers Day is still unknown. Initially, the books were created to make portable the writings and drawings of those who couldn’t carry stone tablets. Initially, the book was parchment or vellum which is bound tightly with the wooden cover. More often the wooden cover was wrapped in leather to prevent the wood from getting wet. As the day goes on, modern printing capabilities made books cheaper and easier to print. The typewriter, printing press and the computers had all the effects on the market of books. Nowadays we have smartphones, tablets and computers to read books, making it easier to carry around a small library to enjoy the most where you are. The bibliophile is the one who loves to read, collect and admire books. They were always amassing a vast collection of books. Bibliophiles do not necessarily need to possess the books they love; an alternative would be to admire them in old libraries. The popularity of E-books is rapidly increasing. E-book or electronic book refers to a book-length publication in digital form. They are available only through the internet. However, they can also be found on CD-ROM and other forms. They can be read either by computer or via the portable book display device known as an e-book reader like Reader, Nook or Kindle.
