How beautiful it is
When copper-colored leaves
Are all that’s left on trees
Bright blue the sky

National Open the Magic Day is
The purpose of this special day is to encourage read-alouds, picture books, the love of reading, and children finding their reading voice.
To celebrate the day, people are encouraged to read a picture book with a child (children).
This is the first year that this day is to be observed, so think of the wonderful time you can have setting up an even bigger celebration in the coming years…
When was the last time you told someone to GET LOST! Well, if you’re an author, hopefully, it was just the other day. People who love to read, don’t really need an invitation to get lost… in a book that is!
September 6th, is:
NATIONAL READ A BOOK DAY
Promote, as you see fit, all the reasons why someone should read one of your books! Perhaps, read one of your books over a connection such as ZOOM. Offer a free eBook. Leave paperback copies in coffee houses, on park benches, etc. Donate books to hospitals, nursing homes, or even prisons/jails.
Because you love books, be good to the books in your collection. Organize your collection in order of what you’ve read versus what you have yet to read. Or rank them in order of favorites or soon to be favorites. Dust their shelves… Books are your friends, so show them a good time!
Go on now, get lost!
