We Are Bibliophiles: Celebrating National Book Lover’s Day

Today is August 9th, National Book Lovers Day; a day created for people like us who found a safe space inside someone else’s imagination. From the scent of a paperback published before our time to a fresh new book, the most pleasant memories can be evoked just by gazing at a book. You may have loved Goosebumps, The Babysitters Club, Shel Silverstein’s poetry, or tween novels like Sweet Valley High as a child. Or maybe more gritty realistic fiction like Donald Goines Whoreson or IceBerg Slim’s Trick Baby as a young adult. Either way, you utterly lose yourself in a fantasy world that a stranger created. 

On National Book Lovers Day, bibliophiles—those who collect or have a deep love of books—are prompted to grab a good book and get lost in it. Turn off the television on August 9th and spend some time reading books by both established and up-and-coming authors. Here is a list of authors and one of their books that I highly recommend you all read.


Author: Takara M. James
Book: Wrongfully Convicted (stand-alone)

Author: Harmony A. Cambridge
Book: Hidden Assassin Files (duet)
