April 23 is International World Book and Copyright Day sponsored by UNESCO (United Nations Education, Scientific and Cultural Organization). According to the UNESCO website, the day “is an opportunity to recognize the power of books to change our lives for the better and to support books and those who produce them.”
My Tuesday list this week consists of interesting facts about books or authors. To present only 10 facts about this topic is somewhat ludicrous. It is somewhat akin to taking 10 drops of water from an ocean and claiming the sample you obtain is representative of all the oceans in the world.
