June 9th is book lover day. Many of us enjoy reading, we enjoy books. I’m a major book lover. I have numerous bookshelves filled with books of all types. I have a preference for physical books over online, although I have used both. I definitely feel wistful when walking into used or/and old bookstores.
It’s the perfect day for bookworms to rejoice and practice what they love the most!
I have to admit that I do not read as much as I used to. When I was still in school, I could read multiple books a week. Now, I have a pile of book in my nightstand waiting to be read. It takes me a little longer to get through them.
The good news is that book lovers are proven to be healthier than people who never read. Reading is very good for our brain health. Reading is also proven to reduce stress levels. Probably because it gives us an escape from reality. People who read live longer than those who don’t according to Yale researchers. Plus, books have stopped bullets. Reading could save your life.

Remember, books must never go to trash, give them to someone who may enjoy them as much than you did!
