Read in the Bathtub Day

Is there a better holiday on Earth than Read in the Bathtub Day? For bookworms like yours truly, this is akin to Christmas. In fact, for some of us, it may be even better than Christmas (unless Christmas comes with some great book gifts and time to read them, which becomes a commodity as we get older). If you love to read, schedule in some time to do so this February 9 (or better yet, all month long!). Here are some things you might want to do to celebrate.

Mark your calendar. Make it a date with yourself—one that you can’t back out of with any excuses. Tell your family members to expect you to have the evening (or morning, or whenever you have the time) to yourself and to use the other bathroom! If that’s not feasible, try just an hour or two while everyone else is asleep.
