5 Wordpress themes designed for bookworms


Since 1995, April 23 is celebrated every year by UNESCO as “World Book and Copyright Day”. This date, dedicated to authors and book lovers, is not chosen at random. In fact, on this date we also commemorate the passing of Miguel Cervantes, William Shakespeare and the Inca Garcilaso de la Vega.

On this day dedicated to books that are passed down from generation to generation, UNESCO and international organizations that represent publishers, booksellers and libraries choose a city to be called “World Book Capital”. In 2022, the Mexican city of Guadalajara was chosen as the winner. For the year 2023, it will be Accra, the capital of Ghana.
