World Book and Copyright Day

What is the ‘Book Day’ about?

Here’s a snippet from UNESCO in its original words:

“World Book and Copyright Day is a celebration to promote the enjoyment of books and reading. Each year, on 23 April, celebrations take place all over the world to recognize the scope of books – a link between the past and the future, a bridge between generations and across cultures.

By championing books and copyright, UNESCO stands up for creativity, diversity and equal access to knowledge.”

An interesting fact:

23rd April is a symbolic date in world literature. It is the date on which several prominent authors, William Shakespeare, Miguel de Cervantes and Inca Garcilaso de la Vega all died.

Personally, I’m not a book worm, but still loves to read books. I left the habit of reading somewhere along the lanes of life. It resumed when I accidentally visited a huge book fair last year. That point was the trigger which re-ignited my spark of reading.

I’m presenting few quotes about books here, in the anticipation that these may re-kindle someone else’s forgotten craze for books.

More than ever, this is the right time to leverage the power of books.

Grab a book tonight, and get lost in a new world!

Happy Reading!
