National Read a Book Day is celebrated every year on September 6 to encourage people to embrace reading and raise awareness about books. Believed to be the idea of a librarian encouraging children to read a book, Read a Book Day was first celebrated in the early 2000s.

Readers today enjoy a wide array of books to browse and read, including memoirs, sci-fi, and novels, so it is easy for everyone to find the perfect book to read on this day. Besides improving memory and concentration, reading also relieves stress. According to studies, adults who spend time reading tend to engage in more mentally stimulating activities over their lifetime compared to those who don’t. Books are also one of the most cost-effective education tools and sources of entertainment.
