I’ve always been one of those people who loves to read in bed. It’s part of my nighttime winding-down routine, a signal to my body that the day is done – which is why if I want to stretch out and read at any other time of day, I try to stay on the couch instead so I don’t doze off. Some nights I don’t get through too many pages before my eyes start to close, but if I don’t read my way into sleep, something just doesn’t feel right. Fortunately, I do have plenty of other places and times for reading, though…I’d never finish anything if I only read at bedtime!
Thanks to BlogHer Books CE Sassymonkey, I’ve learned that this Saturday, February 23, is a day for all bed-and-book people to call their own – it’s the First Annual Bring a Book to Bed Day! Here’s the plan:
My holiday is called BRING A BOOK TO BED DAY and it will be celebrated on the last Saturday in February every year. This year, BRING A BOOK TO BED DAY will take place on February 23rd. How do you celebrate? First thing to do is stay in your pjs the entire day. Next, pick a good book and then, go to bed. Unplug, relax, and curl up with a good book. You can celebrate alone, with your loved one, or your entire family. All you have to do is to take time to read and let your imagination take off.
Realistically, I won’t be able to observe the full day – I’m already committed to doing certain things on Saturday that will require me to leave the house and, therefore, be out of my pajamas. But this certainly sounds like my kind of holiday, and I’m going to do my best to celebrate it, even if just for an hour or two (or however long I can stay awake!). Will you be joining the fun too?
