On every September 18, readers around the world share their love of e-books during Read an E-Book Day. You can celebrate by sharing a post about your favorite e-book with the hashtag #ebooklove on your social media accounts. However, If you’ve never tried reading an e-book before, today is the perfect time to try one out! Borrow one of your favorite books or something completely new.
