National Book Month
Our customers live across the country, so October looks a bit different to everyone. In the north and west, some have already seen snow; in Florida and California, temperatures are still in the 80s and above; and in East Tennessee, where our corporate headquarters is located, a certain crispness has just entered the air that signals the arrival of fall.
Regardless of the weather and your physical location, we all have one thing in common about the month of October - it’s National Book Month! Regardless of whether you can crunch leaves beneath your boots or you’re still wearing flip-flops, we can all but bet that October is your favorite month because we know that it is ours!
What is National Book Month?
National Book Month has happened every October since 2003 and it focuses on the importance of reading, writing, and literature. Awards are given to the top 15 authors of the year and there is increased recognition of favorite authors and novels throughout the years.
National Book Month honors those who have dedicated their lives to creating masterpieces that live on for generations. It also encourages people of all ages to read and write more. We’re so lucky to live in a world where we have those opportunities, and this month is a reminder to take full advantage of it all. Whether you have family reading nights or prefer to read as a solo activity, taking the time to read can benefit you and your family in so many ways.
What Are the Benefits?
If you’ve been part of our BookClub for some time, or you simply know and enjoy the benefits of reading, this may not come as a shock to you. But for those who aren’t aware or need a little refresher, reading is one of the healthiest and best ways to relax. Those who read consistently see less stress, more sleep, lower depression and anxiety, increased vocabulary and comprehension, more empathy, and so much more. Reading can help improve almost every area of your life, so what are you waiting for?!
How Do We Celebrate?
Our favorite way to celebrate National Book Month is with new books, of course! Whether you pick up your favorite book this month or branch out and read something new and unexpected, know that simply taking the time to read is celebration enough. As book nerds, we can’t think of a better way to spend our time, and we know our customers agree!
