April the 23rd is World Book Day … and I am really struggling to get enthused for it this year. Currently (and if you already follow me on Goodreads, you”ll already know this). I am currently reading two books and I am one book behind on my Goodreads Challenge. I am hoping to now catch up. Although the Libraries are closed, I haven’t read SO many of my book crate loot boxes, that now seems to be the most perfect time to read them!
World Book Day, also known as World Book and Copyright Day, or International Day of the Book, is an annual event organised by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO) to promote reading, publishing, and copyright. World Book Day was first celebrated on 23 April 1995, and continues to be recognised on that day. A related event in the United Kingdom and Ireland is observed in March.

How does one even celebrate book day, other than reading a book?Haha
Truly though, isn’t every day world book day!
Maybe take the next week a time to put aside the others and just read a book that makes you happy. Nothings wrong on World book day! Even when it goes for a week!
I have been watching this new series on the ABC called “The Secret Life of Books”…and it is fantastic…I highly recommend that if you can watch it, do it! It seems appropriate that on World Book Day, I would talk about books today!
There are 11 stories all together under the Mabinogion, all come from Welsh. They are the earliest prose stories of the literature of Britain. The stories were compiled in the 12th–13th centuries from earlier oral traditions. The two main source manuscripts were created c. 1350–1410, as well as a few earlier fragments. These stories offer drama, philosophy, romance, tragedy, fantasy and humour, and were created by various narrators over time.
The stories of the Mabinogion are strongly believed to be the beginnings of the King Arthurian period.
