Whether its right before bed, snuggled up in an arm chair or lounging in the sun, there is nothing like a good book! As you may know today is World Book Day, a day marked by over 100 countries around the world to celebrate books and reading. Whilst we can’t dress up to celebrate the day as we would have done as nippers* we can still appreciate the joy of books! So, if you are the kind of person who loves to find a new book to read when going on holiday then you’re in the right place, as we’re putting the spotlight on some of our properties with full bookshelves that you can delve into whilst you’re away.
*Although do read on if you would like to see what some members of the Sykes team would dress up as this World Book Day.
Properties Perfect For Bookworms
This wonderful property is located in Killarney, County Kerry and is located ideally for exploring all that the local area has to offer. Although, you will have to drag yourself away from all those books first!
This unique and quirky property is a book lover’s paradise, with three large bookshelves covering the walls in the living area and comfortable sofas so that you can really get stuck into one of those books!
With a wall full of books, you will be spoilt for choice of what to get stuck into during your stay at Manor Farmhouse! If the weather is sunny, why not take your book outside to lounge by the pool? Although, if it is a little chilly there is no need to worry, as you will be spoilt for choice of comfy places to sit indoors!
Our World Book Day Costumes
Whilst we can’t wear a costume for World Book Day, that hasn’t stopped us from wishing that we could! Bearing this in mind, I had a quick ask around the team to see what costumes they would be wearing today if we could turn back the clocks to when we were back in school. Nicole would dress up as the eccentric and well-dressed Effie Trinket from The Hunger Games Trilogy; Jamie would go for Captain Pugwash as he loved the books as a child; our king of suave Jonathan would be dressed up as Fantastic Mr Fox; Louise would go for the spellbinding Hermione Grainger; and I would go for The Mad Hatter from Alice in Wonderland – what a nice excuse to drink copious amounts of tea!
