Book Love || World Book Day

World Book Day began in 1995, and falls on the first day of March.

Each year it's become a great excuse to while away 
the hours, with my nose buried within 
the pages of my current read.

In the UK, each child in full time education 
is given a voucher to spend on books.

I adore this incentive, and also the fact that schools
celebrate by having children turn up 
dressed as their favourite literary character.

I really think it should be compulsory for adults to dress up too.
That would make a great conversation starter, especially for singletons.

I'd have a hard time deciding who to dress as, but do have a
great many favourites to choose from.

I think I'm channeling my Mrs. Danvers today!

This still is from the classic 1940 film by Alfred Hitchcock, which
is an adaptation of the 1938 novel; Rebecca, by Daphne Du Maurier.

Have a great day, and happy reading!
