National Book Month

Did you know that October is National Book Month? What better time to fall into a book than the first full month of fall? Grab a light blanket (because let's face it, most of us aren't having truly cold temperatures yet), light a fire, make some tea and curl up with a great new book or an old favorite.

I'm probably preaching to the choir here, though, right? For my part, I didn't actually have any idea it was National Book Month until I visited the Writer's Digest website and saw a story on there about it.

Speaking of books and October, there's another blog hop going for the month with a Halloween theme. This one appears to be for published horror writers, and is called the Coffin Hop Horror Web Tour. It will be taking place between October 24 and October 31, and will involve prizes. Sounds fun; check it out!

Did you know it was National Book Month? Know of any special ways to celebrate it?

May you find your Muse.

That's why NaNoRiMo is in November. (it stands for National Novel Writing Month) pretty cool, huh?

Shannon Lawrence said...

Rebecca, me neither!

Maeve, I figured others might appreciate it!

M.J., I'm glad, as well.

Shelly, is it good?

Reina, I like most books (though not big on romance), but mostly Horror and Urban Fantasy. What about you?

J.A., speaking of which, I need to decide if I'm going to NaNo it this year. It would probably be bad, but might give me a break from current editing. Hrm.

I didn't know this, thanks for sharing. I'm actually ashamed that I'm a librarian and I didn't know it was National Book Month!

Shannon Lawrence said...

Julie, no shame here! I'm wondering how long it has even been around.
