Julie reads in bed during the day "I buy a Quebec book"

Julie lit au lit lors de la journée «j'achète un livre québécois»

Do you know the event On August 12, I buy a Quebec book ? Founded by 2 authors in 2014, this event is an opportunity to get a Quebec book (or two, or three) to promote our culture. What if we took the opportunity to maximize our reading experience by purchasing Quebec items?

My 5 essentials for a day of reading

1. Comfort

Cushions are a must when it comes to reading, right? Here are some models that make you want to curl up in them.

2. Hydration

We know it's important to stay hydrated and we easily forget that. Why not do it with a mug made in Quebec?

3. The atmosphere

Darkness does not prevent me from reading! I can easily imagine this lamp hanging in my library corner. And you?

4. Inspiration

To take notes on your reading, to write down all the books you want to read, or to do the recommended exercises. Unless it's a notebook to write the outline of your next novel? ?

Why not treat yourself to a nice bookmark instead of using old bills?

And of course, an original greeting card to accompany a book you are giving as a gift.

For my part, I created a lot of new needs by writing this article. It is very likely that I let myself be tempted by one of the products I told you about. Also, I will be at the Librairie Morency, in the Quebec region, to recommend books all day.
