On September 06, 2017 Read a Book Day is celebrated. And right at the outset to all slacker when it comes to reading: no worries, contrary to the name of this holiday you don't have to read a whole book in just one day. Read a Book Day is a day to encourage people to read: either for themselves, for children or for elderly people to give them some quality time. Reading is not only fun, but it can also improve your health by lowering your stress levels, stimulate the brain activity and improve your memory. So reading is fun and healthy: Grab a book and try it for yourself on Read a Book Day.
