In our fast paced technologically driven world it is easy to judge the humble book as out of date and forgotten, but for so many it isn’t…that is why ‘World Booklover’s Day’ exists today!

For countless of readers there is nothing more joyful than curling in the corner with a good novel, or pouring over a beautiful, decadent and oversized coffee table book.

Second hand bookstores are still found in every city because nothing beats the smell of aged pages and previous owners’ turned down dog-ears marking their favourite places in the story.

World Booklover Day is the day that “encourages you to find a place and relax with a good book”.  A pastime that has almost been left in the past, but that we think is still so important and worth treasuring. We asked around the office for some favourite titles, a few classics made the Mkt. list…
