Love books? At Writer’s Relief, we do too! Which is why we’re celebrating National Book Lover’s Day. Check out these great ways to commemorate the day from www.bookish.com:

Drop some literary references. Whether you’re speaking out loud or putting frindle to paper (see what I did there?), adopt the lingo of some of your favorite tomes, and see who else decides to join in!
