How do you celebrate National Book Lovers Day?
Originally these documents were made on parchment or vellum (calf skin, in case there’s some question) that was then bound tightly with a wooden cover. Often the wooden cover was tightly wrapped in leather to prevent the wood from getting wet and had clasps or straps to hold it shut. In Eastern cultures, carved wooden blocks were used with ink to print out texts on cloth, as early as 220 AD.
Today, we don’t have to read just on calf skin, we can now read on electronic devices.
First book is written
Known as The Epic of Gilgamesh, this book is a mythical interpretation of a political figure, surviving as a collection of poems
I am probably just going too tuck myself into bed with my Kobo, and read my books on there. I think I am going to be tired to really celebrate it. I just haven’t slept well the last couple of nights. I might even fall asleep before I even get around to reading anything, lol
