Inaugural Intergalactic Future of The Book Day Tomorrow

I've just announced tomorrow to be Future of the Book Day, following National Book Day today.
Now I need to decide how I'd encourage the nation to celebrate it.

Ok - so, today think about the books you've loved to read,
tomorrow imagine the ones you'd love to read in the future.

Today love your bookshelves
Tomorrow imagine what even wonderful things might replace them.

Today go to the library
Tomorrow imagine the Unlibrary

Today lend a book to a friend
Tomorrow invent a new story for that friend and tell it to them in a new way.

Today love books
Tomorrow let go of your obsession with paper and think about how what you love about literature and reading can be replicated and improved and set free by new technology.

Any other ideas?

I'll be here speaking and celebrating.
