Everybody reads something: a textbook, an instruction guide, a newspaper with current events, text messages, motivational books, books on leadership, children’s books for your little one, a doctor’s prescription, junk mail, our emails, unforgettable stories, poems, a study guide, and articles from magazines and journals.
On National Book Lovers Day, we are thankful for our ability to read. Many people read in more than one language. In this century, we all are champions of modern technology and have access 24/7 to books and information. Nevertheless, there is nothing like opening a new book and imagining the fairy tales we encounter, or discovering a new part of the world, or learning new areas of expertise!
The desire of books brings us to the Library. When we moved to the new FNU Library on the second floor of the Dr. Jose Regueiro Classroom Building, we put out a small Guest Book at the front Circulation Desk asking those who visited to jot down their thoughts on visiting the library.
It is a good time to open it now, and share with the local Reading Community the Book Lovers Testimonies on National Book Lovers Day:
