Hi, people!

If you didn't know, today is a World Book Day or World Book and Copyright Day- a yearly event on April 23rd organized by the UNESCO to promote reading, publishing and copyright. It was celebrated for he first time on 23 April 1995!

That's why I would like to share with you today some thoughts of famous people about books and reading:

Whenever you read a good book, somewhere in the world a door opens to allow in more light. –Vera Nazarian
If we encounter a man of rare intellect, we should ask him what books he reads. –Ralph Waldo Emerson
A book is a dream that you hold in your hand. –Neil Gaiman
There are many little ways to enlarge your child’s world. Love of books is the best of all. –Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis

I love books. And so does my husband. Several times, we say to each other, why don't we watch a movie. Then, we can't think of what movie we want to watch at home. So, we end up each grabbing a book and reading all evening.

Thanks, Myra, for your comment! I agree with you- it is better to read a good book then to watch bad movie on TV! Best regards!

It is a good book when it is opened with expectation and closed with delight.
But always remember, read a good novel before Hollywood ruins it.

I like the second one. There are times when we are actually blessed with the rare occassion to meet intelligent people. And to be able to see more of their minds, just ask for book titles and you'll know what kind of person he or she is :)
