National Book Lovers Day 📚
August 9, 2022
An event every year that begins at 12:00 am on day 9 of August, repeating indefinitely
August 9 is National Book Lovers Day! Several of the founding fathers liked to read, but only one devised a contraption to read multiple books at once. Thomas Jefferson’s revolving bookstand had room for five books or letters and could be spun around to the reading that most struck one’s fancy. 📚📖📚
