July 2018 // Paperback Book Day

For as long as I can remember, I have always been reading. I love it and it’s such a great way to escape for a couple of hours. Sometimes you can have a good amount of free time to read a couple of chapters but unfortunately, not all the time. I know there are now eBook versions of your favourite books to read on your phone / tablet but there’s nothing better than having the paperback in your hands.

Today is Paperback Book Day, a good day to celebrate all paperback books whether it’s heading to your favourite bookshop or looking over your collection to recall those quiet days spent reading a book.

June 2018 – Nature Photography Day

If you’re a fan of photography, then I’m sure you might just know what today is, or if you’ve read the title of this post! That’s right, I’m speaking about Nature Photography Day, I adore taking photos I have written about that countless times here on An Ocean Glimmer, even celebrating National Camera Day last June by taking photos of Plymouth.

May 2018 – Get Caught Reading Month

It only feels like yesterday that it was January, now we’re starting May. Spring is definitely here and hopefully, it will stick around for a little while. I’m really enjoying sharing with you different National Day/Month, you get to learn something new and exciting. May marks Get Caught Reading Month, a nationwide campaign to promote the fun of reading books for all ages.

The campaign was launched in 1999 by the Association of American Publishers and now managed by Every Child a Reader with support from the Lois Lenski Covey Foundation. To celebrate Get Caught Reading Month is really easy you just need to dig your nose into a book and forget about the concerns of other peoples’ opinions. Get Caught Reading Month is a great chance to meet other bibliophiles as well!

January 2018 – Sticker Day

I hope you have enjoyed these as much as I have writing them, I’ve definitely learnt about some random things!
