1. September – Ninth Month of the Year
Being the ninth in line tends to come and go without much fanfare. A few vocal September dates are tired of being ignored. Show your appreciation to September by reading the 9th book on your TBR mountain or read a book with a title that starts with one of the 9 letters in SEPTEMBER or a book with ‘9’ in the page count.
2. September 5 – Cowgirl Day
Western genres and cowgirl boots aren’t for everybody but the theme can be! Read a book with a female lead or a book where boots are worn or a book where horses (or horsepower, i.e. cars, motorcycles) are used.
3. September 8 – Date Nut Bread Day
Sometimes you just want to be literal. Read a book where a couple goes on a date, or book where bread is eaten (sandwiches count!) or a book title that begins with a letter in DATE-NUT BREAD.
4. September 9 – Teddy Bear Day
Hmm… Brown bears are considered terrifying while Teddy Bears are synonymous with comfort. Read a book with a cover that makes you feel ‘comfortable’ or a book where someone needs comfort or a book with a bear shifter!
5. September 12 – International Drive Your Studebaker Day
There aren’t many that still have Studebaker’s so somebody’s re-imagining it. Yea, they are, by reading a book with wheels on the cover or a book set in the past or a book where someone drives. It’s become a thing!
6. September 15 – 8-Track Tape Day
Ah, a blast from the past. Read the oldest book on your TBR mountain or a book that has 8 books in the series or a book with a musical theme.
7. September 22 – Autumn Equinox
First day of autumn seems to take a back seat to the first day of spring but it shouldn’t, it’s just as special. Say goodbye to official summer by reading the last book of a series, or reading a book with a ‘cool’ character or reading a book that has a bonfire.
8. September 24 – Cherries Jubilee Day
A great welcome fall dessert is tasty cherries jubilee! Just gathering ingredients, like cherries, ice cream and a flame… or just read a book with a read cover or a book set in summer or a book with a ‘hot’ character. (if it’s hot to you, it’s hot to us!)
9. September 26 – Forget-Me-Not Day
Now is the perfect time to reread a favorite book or a book with a second chance romance or a book recommended as a favorite by a friend.
10. September 29 – International Coffee Day
Coffee starts many a day but some people drink it all day long, hence the need for coffeeshops and what good is a coffee shop without a barista?!? Read a book with a barista or a book where a coffee shop is drunk or a book with brown on the cover.
BONUS: September 1- No Rhyme, No Reason Day
Some things just are! No fault, no blame, no praise, no back pats and no excuses either! Read or listen to any book you want just because you can!
