1. Take a literary field trip in your city! For example, Beverly Cleary is from Portland, OR so you can take a trip to the Beverly Cleary Sculpture Garden where you can check out life-sized statues of Ramona Quimby, Henry Huggins and Henry’s dog, Ribsy. Check out famous authors from your state here! 2. Start reading (or re-reading) a book followed by watching the movie adaptation. Jane Austen, Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, the possibilities are endless!
4. Organize your books. This one may not be as fun for some, but you and your partner can re-organize your bookshelf (books I want to read, favorite non-fiction, favorite fiction, alphabetical, whatever you’d like). Donate or sell the rest at your local used bookstore.
6. Attend a book signing. Check out your local bookstore or library to see if there are any upcoming authors visiting your town and make a date out of it! We’re lucky to be near Powell’s, the world largest independent bookstore. 7. Read. When you run out of options, hit the bookstore, library, coffee shop, or comfy couch and simply enjoy reading next to your partner. Sounds like any regular night to us!
