National Book Lovers Day

It’s #NationalBookLoversDay and that makes my heart so happy. ⠀

Naming one single book that drew me to reading is impossible. But I originally joined #bookstagram about a month ago to find more people like me. My friends and family were probably starting to get annoyed by my constant hounding of “HAVE YOU READ THIS YET!!?” ⠀

Finally I joined it bc I was in search for stories about people like me, and reader, I not only found stories I also found other people. Thanks to all who have been so welcoming to me on my journey to find myself within pages. ⠀

There are some things that bother me about #bookstagram. One is that it can be really capitalistic. It can be hard to keep your wallet in check when you’re constantly trying to buy the best new book. But I feel like buying #ownvoices and from independent bookstores helps combat this. And also of course the #library ⠀

I miss the library so much. I would take my son every Sunday after his nap to browse the stacks. And then we would go to the park next door. Those simple activities are what I miss the most. ⠀

Love to you all #bookcommunity. May the pages you read light up your past, present, and future. #bookstagrammer #diversifybookstagram #diversifyyourfeed #diversifyyourbookshelf #readersforequality #nationalbookloversday #bookstack #booknerd #booklover #librariestransform #supportlocalbusiness #supportlocallibraries @lapubliclibrary @arroyosecolapl #thankyoulibraries
