No matter the genre.
No matter the format.
No matter your age.
No matter your background.
No matter your preference for length, or lack thereof.
No matter your inclination towards or against illustrations included.
No matter your chosen venue.
No matter your reason for reading, be it recreational or goal oriented.
No matter if you’re swimming in free time or sneaking in a few minutes every chance you get.
No matter if you’re a party of one or reading to an audience.

This is a reading holiday for all book fans.

Each heartfelt and poetic two page spread is another love letter from the standpoint of a book to readers everywhere.  It reminds us just how many roles books actually play in our lives every day.  From opening paths of discovery to lifting us to the ultimate heights of inspiration, feeding our imaginations to fueling our daydreams, each and every one we encounter impacts our lives in some fashion, shapes our thinking in some way.  Amazing the power of the written word, no?

So, I pose the title in a question to all of you…
…IF YOU WERE A BOOK, what would you do, hope to accomplish or share with the world?
Do tell!
