Bookish Tweets To Celebrate UK World Book Day

World Book Day for the United Kingdom was last week, so here’s the wrap up you need while you wait  till next month for America’s turn, so do yourself and your books a favor and READ… but not before you go through these many but splendid bookish tweets, half of which are for this holy bookish day!

 

Secure Support System?

Having trouble finding the surefire way to land a job? Well, I think we’ve got you covered…

Just don’t misinterpret your witch counselors’ advice; otherwise, the job you land will be the last one you’ll ever get, and without even getting enough time to fully enjoy it.

 

Mortal Brains Vs. Godly Brawn

Sometimes, the best thing to do is to stay out of conflict…

…yet for Odysseus, there’s nothing he can seem to do about getting into trouble, flaunting his intellect, toying with the gods, and ultimately fighting a losing battle.

 

Wine + Bondage = Food Of Love?

This may seem like a regurgitation of Read It Forward’s tweet from last week’s piece when RIF suggested that books would be what fills your soul instead of being in a relationship. While RIF isn’t wrong on that front, SparkNotes may have another solution to that problem…

If that’d be the case – that is, if you replace “wine cellar” with either “library” or “bookstore” – then we need Montresor to brick us in stat – wait, he’d only just deny doing the crime. Well, if anyone would be willing to brick you in for an eternity, then hold onto them!

 

Black Is The New… Well, Black

When we first see Hamlet – Jr. that is – we don’t initially blame him for mourning his dead dad and not wanting to move on so quickly. The rest have other opinions…

Express your right to act and dress Emo, Hamlet! You more than deserve to! Just don’t be the cause of everybody else’s death, including yours… okay?

 

When The Drive Is Too Strong

We all have problems. We’re all addicted to something we can’t seem to tear ourselves away from. For some, it can be controlled, but for others, not so much…

Rage, rage against the dying of your own self-control, Achilles.

 

You’ve probably noticed by now this article has been nothing but SparkNotes tweets. Well, congratulations: you just reached the halfway point of the article, so now here are some World Book Day tweets! Let me start off with this one…

A simple question, but an important one all the same. I’ll give you some time to think about that. So, while you think, here are the other tweets!

 

They Grow Up So Fast

We all have dreams, that’s a given, but it’s our choice to stick with them. Just look at this girl…

If you have a dream of reading 30 books all in one month, or even competing in the Olympics, then stick with it! No dream is too big or too small if you work at it each and every day. You’ll grow tremendously when you do – quite literally in some cases!

And speaking of literally…

 

Duty Calls

What if books can help in more ways than you thought possible? I mean, books are our friends, right? So, can we count on them for just this one instance, your dire time of need?

Yeah, please don’t. (Our friends deserve better.)

So, to sanitize you from the previous tweet, how about this one…

 

Read While You Wash – Without Getting Your Book Wet!

Considering our current issues surrounding health, this might be the perfect thing to help you protect against the Coronavirus, while getting some of your reading done at the same time, if for just 20-30 seconds…

Even if you don’t have someone to read your book to you like this, audiobooks would work perfectly in this case. Never worry about germs or missed reading time ever again!

 

Books Are The Windows To The Soul

So, if you want yet another reason to dedicate your whole day (if you can) to reading, then consider this argument for all of the books in your “To Be Read” pile collecting dust on your shelves…

Is the portrait of yourself made up of colors that have yet to be used? Of strokes yet to be painted, explored? Don’t let your bookshelves be like most of Alaska Young’s personal library: filled to the brim but forever unread. (RIP, Alaska Young. Make her proud and read to your heart’s content!)

I think this final tweet pretty much says it all…
