Thumbs up Today, April 23rd, is the International Day of the Book

Since 1995, the UNESCO celebrates every 23 April the World Book and Copyright Day.

This day commemorates the anniversary of the deaths of both Shakespeare and Cervantes, who, as you should already know by now, died on the same day, of the same year, but 10 days apart. It is also Saint George's day, if you want to do something special about that.

Most importantly, it's a day to celebrate books, authors, and reading; a day to enjoy the books you have, to get new ones, to gift books to friends, to encourage reading in children... You have some time to decide what you will do tomorrow

Celebrating copyright sounds more like a celebration of sales and money making thank culture. So I'll only retain "World book".

Yes, very weird to have a celebration on a legal issue like copyright. What's next, a party for habeas corpus? Litigation Day? Citizen Arrest Fair?

It's all good. Should we start a worldwide anti-copyright day?

I assume the apparent contradiction is due to the imperfections of the calendar they used back then. They should have the 10th of May recognized as a holiday too as a memorial for all the innocent books that met a horrible fate on that date in 1933 in Berlin Germany.
