National Book Lover's Day
On the 9th of August, book lovers around the world will come together to put away their smart phones and celebrate their love for literature. Here at VOICE, we want to be a part of this.
Storytelling is part of our human nature and gets passed down from one generation to another. The stories your great grandparents once told their children could be the very same story your own grand children will be told. Reading and story telling connects all generations across the world. And not only that, but studies have shown that reading can slow down cognitive decline in later life.
We’re asking you to share with us the book which left an impact. This could include your outlooks on life, the way you view different relationships, or perhaps something which really empowered you.
For example, “The Midnight Library, by Matt Haig, makes you think about how all the small choices you make can have a big impact on your future. However, it’s important for us to realise that you can spend all your time thinking “what if?”, when it’s more important to focus on the positives of what you have now rather than living with regrets of the past.”
The only criteria we ask for is that you have read a book which left a lasting impression on you.
What will I be asked to do?
- What is the title of your chosen book?
- Who is the author of your chosen book?
- Is there a key quote you would like to share from your chosen book?
- Why was this book important to you?
- What was your key take away from this book?
Please also include your name, age and location.
Please note this information will be shared on our social media pages and will be connected to a blog on the VOICE platform. Please let us know if you would prefer for this information not to be shared.
When and where?
All entries must be shared by Sunday 7th of August.
Book Lover’s Day is on the 9th of August, and we will be sharing your stories on our socials then.
