Who was the best? Stressful? you can relax with some music.

23rd APRIL BOOK DAY


World Book Day ( also known as International Day of the Book) is an event celebrated on 23 April every year, organized by UNESCO to promote reading, publishing and copyright. The day was first celebrated in 1995 in the USA.

The connection between 23 April and bookswas first made in 1993 by booksellers in Spain as a way to honour the Spanish writer Miguel de Cervantes who died on that day.

This became a part of the celebrations of the Saint George's Day in Catalonia, where it has been traditional since the medieval era for men to give roses to their lovers and since 1925 for the woman to give a book in exchange.

In 1995, UNESCO decided that the World Book Day would be celebrated on this date because of the anniversary of the deaths of the best writers of all times, William Shakespeare and Miguel de Cervantes.

To celebrate World Book Day, the team from Macmillan Education has prepared a wonderful chart that lists 10 idioms about books.
Some of the phrases, like “in someone’s good books,” are associated with positive feelings or actions. However, the word “book” can be also used to describe things in negative light. The example is “to bring someone to book.”
There is probably only one idiom on the list that most people know and use – “don’t judge the book by it’s cover.” What about the other nine? Your knowledge of idioms about books is not a closed book, is it?
