Do you love books ? Do you love reading ? If you already know that reading makes a full man (or woman) then this month (September) is for you. Here in Sri Lanka and in many other countries, September is celebrated as the Literary Month (sometimes also called Literature Month) , headlined by the International Day of Literacy on September 8. In most countries, this event is preceded by Read a Book Day (September 6) and Buy a Book Day (September 7). Yes, worldwide, a large number of children and adults cannot read and cannot unlock the magic of books. This day focuses on the efforts to teach millions of such individuals to read and write in their own languages. Luckily for Sri Lanka, more than 90 percent of people are literate, which is an admirable rate for a developing country.
