World Book Day on April 23rd

There are many great holidays out there, Christmas, Thanksgiving, your birthday, National Eat Pie Day, and so many more, but we have to say that our favorite holiday is World Book Day. World Book Day is celebrated in more than 100 countries each year on April 23rd, and it’s a time to celebrate the wonderful gift of reading. We’ve observed it since its official inception in 1995 by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO). 

Some countries worldwide celebrate on different days, but most recognize World Book Day on April 23rd because of its significance to the world of reading - April 23rd is the day that William Shakespeare, Miguel de Cervantes, and Inca Garcilaso de la Vega died. As three incredible writers throughout history, many decision-makers decided this was the most fitting day to celebrate the love of reading and its benefits.

So how should you celebrate World Book Day? Of course, the most obvious way is by reading! But you can take that in many different directions; you could read alone in your room, gather a group of friends for a book club, attend a reading by your favorite author, or volunteer at your local library. The way that you choose to celebrate is up to you, but as long as you have a book in hand, we’d say you’re doing just fine. 

Sign up for our book box subscription service if you're looking for new material. You can choose your favorite genre, and our expert curators will do the rest. For example, if you sign up for our Thrill Seeker category this month, you can expect to receive Her Name Was Rose by Claire Allan and Wife Stalker: A Novel by Liv Constantine. If romance is more your speed, look out for Not That Kind of Guy by Andie J. Christopher and Would Like to Meet by Rachel Winters. If you’re into far-off places and Strange Worlds, keep an eye out for Oona Out of Order by Margarita Montimore and Sherwood by Meagan Spooner. 

For those who are indecisive or love reading anything they can get their hands on, we have a category just for you; we won’t ruin the surprise in this blog, but go ahead and order now to get two new fiction novels. We also offer categories for children, pre-teens, and young adults, because reading is a valuable skill (and hobby!) for everyone. 

At BookCase.Club, we know that reading is one of the healthiest and most relaxing pastimes and we think you should celebrate that by reading daily. Even if you don’t read every day, we encourage you to pick up a new (or old favorite!) novel this World Book Day. By drifting into a different world, you can open your mind to new possibilities and feel any pressure and tension release from your body. Here’s to new books and a great day to celebrate.
