Interestingly enough, if two years ago I still wished for this day to fall during a weekend, this year I realized that Jordi Pujol (a former long-time president of the Generalitat, whom I had the chance to hear in a radio interview) is right: we should stop wishing for this day to become a public holiday since if it were, a lot of people would stay at home. The fact that most of the time it falls on an ordinary weekday only contributes to its popularity. And let us not take any risks - for many people this is the only day of the year they actually buy a book.
