I was a little confused and surprised this morning, when I opened my pc and found Twitter in a book fever ! This calendar thing is curious, isn’t it? Every nation can decide its own date to celebrate whatever it needs to be globally celebrated. In the UK today is
… and I was very happy to discover this wonderful celebration. Firstly because I love books, obviously ! Secondly, because I love the United Kingdom. And thirdly … because all over the world people are tweeting, posting bookish status and talking about books, and they dress up as the characters they love, and they READ ! So, in a certain way, we can talk really about a global celebration, even though this is a national one. Everyone, in every part of the earth connected by internet, feels in need to share their love for books, today. They are not waiting for the 23rd of April. Or May. I opened this blog because for me every day is dedicated to books, to reading and to writing stories, to share emotions and opinions about them. When all over the world this kind of book fever happen, it doesn’t matter why, or when, or who. It’s always good. And I love it ! So thank you guys, thank you, today I feel part of something big.
