National Book Blitz Month is observed in January every year. How many times have you bookmarked a book on a shelf to read with good intentions to complete reading it in record time, only for it to be abandoned? It is Book Blitz Month again, and this is the time to pick them back up, rededicate yourself, and complete them as a means of celebrating. Y’all know readers are leaders!
History of National Book Blitz Month
Books are storehouses of knowledge and information. While blitz refers to sudden arousal and swift response to a particular cause, reading books is a lifestyle that is gradually declining among young people today. The reasons for the creation of the Book Blitz Month were to encourage authors to intensify their efforts towards promoting their books and create an ambiance that makes the reading culture thrive and grow in society.
Every January, the holiday aims to recommit our intellectual minds by going to a book signing or launch in your area, meeting or e-mailing an author (that would be a much-needed morale-booster), or buying books from online or retail outlets, and gift them to your kids and neighbors. Let the fire of reading kindle and spread farther.
As another National Book Blitz Month is here again, we are pumped up with energy and vigor to dust up our shelves and grace our hands on these generational pieces of inspiration. The purpose of this year’s Book Blitz Month is to channel our energies towards encouraging all authors around the world by buying their books and building or reviving the culture of reading in our homes and individual lives.
We encourage you to make this month a memorable one, set up your calendar, encourage others, and carve a reading corner for your children if need be. Readers are leaders, readers read books, and hence great leaders are book lovers. Let’s make some blitz on those books.
