Happy International Day of the Book!

Hope you did something book-related today. When I was in Spain (11 years ago!), all the bookstores held special sales for the day, even in the small city where I was--I bought a book of Gustavo Adolfo Bécquer's Leyendas and received a flower as well, which I then gave to my host family. Here's info on the holiday, which commemorates both Shakespeare and Cervantes.

I was hoping to have our girl be born on the day--figured it'd be fitting. Certainly if she's anything like her big brother she'll love books. But that was only after it seemed clear she wouldn't be born on Earth Day, which also would have been nice. And I was only hoping for that once it was clear she wouldn't be born on the 21st... Oh well, any day now.
