Our playlist this week is in honour of Book Lovers Day. There are tracks about books, songs with literary references, or about words or writing or some connection to books.

Book Lovers Day is celebrated on August 9 every year. This is an unofficial holiday observed to encourage bibliophiles celebrate reading and literature. People are advised to put away their smartphones and every possible technological distraction and pick up a book to read. But give the playlist a listen before you do that.

Many of the songs on the playlist, came from a CBC article I found. You can check that out and read more about those tracks there.

Themes are a fun way for me to gather some music for the playlists. Do you have any theme ideas for me for future playlists? Let me know.
