Happy National Book Lovers Day!

Happy National Book Lovers Day! We, the Social Enterprise team, took some time to reflect on the books we love and why we love them. It’s amazing how books impact us and the timeless lessons they teach us. Books make us laugh, allow us to dream and imagine, help us consider new realities, and make us feel less alone. Books are some of the best companions! What book do you love? Why do you love it? Share with us on our Instagram today, we’d love to hear from you!


All Things Fall Apart, Chinua Achebe

“I can relate to it and empathize with the story.”

The Lorax, Dr. Seuss

“It tells us how important it is to preserve what we have on earth.”

To Kill a Mockingbird, Harper Lee

“It was the first book I finished solo, so it’s branded to me.”


“I love it because of all the positive stories in it.”

Deltora Quest, Emily Rodda

“I love it because it was the only book I was excited to read and not put down. I liked feeling like I was adventuring with them.”

The March of Folly, Barbara W. Tuchman

“It’s an anthology of all the screw ups of Western governments for a thousand years. I love it because it’s the clearest illustration of hubris I have ever read.”

All About Love, Bell Hooks

“It’s a book I keep coming back to. It helps me remember what is important and who I want to be in the world.”

Tar Beach, Faith Ringgold

“It reminds me of my childhood and good times with my family.”
