Today is D.E.A.R. Day.

D.E.A.R Day
Celebrating D.E.A.R. Day, every reader’s favorite day.

D.E.A.R. Day stand for: Drop Everything And Read Day! A day intended for everyone to dedicate a significant amount of time to reading? Yes please!

Today is also American author Beverly Cleary’s birthday. She was inspired to write about D.E.A.R. Day in some of her books, based on an earlier version of this celebration dating back to the 1960s. These activities were mainly held in schools and not associated with any specific dates. It’s fitting that the modern version of this event commemorates her special day, as well.

There are many benefits to reading. Studies show readers live longer. Reading reduces stress. Best of all, reading builds knowledge. But we already knew that, didn’t we?

Today we bring you three sapphic books with main characters who are booksellers.
