Read A New Book Month

Read A New Book Month is the perfect opportunity to pick up that novel you’ve been meaning to start, that DIY manual you bought to work on that project but never actually read, or even a technical manual to help with the understanding of a new piece of machinery.

Iran (IMNA) - When a person opens the pages of a new book, they can easily find themselves swept up in a delightful world of unique and interesting characters and stories, or maybe just compelling information. The best books, even instructional ones, guide the reader through a storyscape that builds up and shares the vision of something the author wanted to share with the people of the world.

History of Read A New Book Month

Books have stood as a testament to the spreading of knowledge, the sharing of tales, and the expansion of the mind by recording and passing on these ideas down through a written medium. For centuries, they have been vital for humans to be able to expand their minds beyond physical space and time.

By writing down and replicating the thoughts, ideas, and imaginations of authors to fans, students, and philosophers everywhere, people have developed the ability to share and expand their own thoughts by putting them on paper for others to read.

The first written word seems to have appeared in 3400 BC, and the first story was The Epic of Gilgamesh, a tale of the eponymous ruler of the Sumerian city-state of Uruk who ruled between 2700-2500 BC, told in a mythological style.

While this first tale was written on clay tablets long before the more convenient medium of paper was invented, it none-the-less qualified as a book. Of course, the definition of what constitutes a book has certainly changed over the years, covering everything from bark pages held together in a variety of styles, rolled pages of papyrus, and modernized books more like those that people are familiar with today.

Read A Book Month encourages everyone, adults and children alike, to take in as many books as they can in their lives, learning new things, living creative lives and opening their minds to new forms of philosophy and possibilities. Obviously, this isn’t the only month that people should be reading new books but, hopefully, it will be the beginning of a thirst for knowledge and joy that can come from between the pages of a book.

With a variety of book days, weeks and months throughout the calendar, it’s easy to keep the passion for reading kindled all throughout the year.
