A book, I think, is very like, A little golden door, That takes me into places, Where I have never been before, It leads me into fairyland, Or countries strange and far, And, best of all, the golden door, Always stands ajar. - Adelaide Love
Books are a necessary part of every functioning civilization. They transmit history, teach morals, keep laws, maintain a stable language, codify both religion and philosophy and spread ideas. There is no end to the importance of this treasure called the book.
The link between 23rd April and books was first made in 1923 by booksellers in Spain to honor the author, Miguel de Cervantes, who died on that day. As for today, the World Book and Copyright Day is observed in over 100 countries, where schools, private businesses, voluntary organizations and lots of more people and groups come together to pay a tribute to both books and their authors.
The annually celebrated World Book and Copyright Day, which is also known as International Day of the Book or World Book Day, is organized by UNESCO to promote reading, publishing and copyright amongst all public worldwide. This day symbolizes the celebration of the world well-known authors and encourages everybody, especially youth, to discover the gratification of reading.
