Popular calendar Title | Daily full-color images | Printed on high-quality paper | Features easy tear-off pages daily

A year-changing list for every book lover. Celebrate the pleasure of reading books (and of reading about books) while discovering new titles to add to your literary bucket list. Inspired by veteran bookseller James Mustich’s 1,000 Books to Read Before You Die, this compulsively readable calendar features brainy-but-fun quizzes, quirky lists (Books to Read By Mood), and stellar recommendations that will make you want to drop everything, curl up, and get reading. Here, the classics—by Woolf, Tolstoy, Faulkner—are made completely fresh, while lesser-known gems—by Clarice Lispector, HalldÓr Laxness, Ellen Ullman—are made essential. Covering fiction, poetry, science and science fiction, memoir, travel writing, biography, and history, it's an ideal gift for book club members and readers of all stripes.

Small but impactful, this desk calendar is perfect to brighten up even the smallest of spaces offering a pop of personality and quick monthly reference. Fresh, fun, and exceptionally stylish, this calendar features a built-in easel and is perfect for display on even the most space-challenged desktop, table, or bookshelf. Challenge yourself throughout the year or give this calendar as a gift to a friend.

About Workman Publishing Company

Workman Publishing is an innovator in calendar publishing. For more than forty years, the revolutionary Page-A-Day calendar has dominated the industry and is now synonymous with the Workman name. Workman calendars are bestsellers and have been from the beginning: The Page-A-Day Calendar line has combined over 98 million copies sold since they first hit the market. Workman’s #1 bestseller, 365 Cats Page-A-Day, has sold more than 10.4 million copies since its debut in 1990. Starting with the 2021 calendar line, Workman announces the next big step—a new, eco-friendly design for the entire Page-A-Day Calendar line. Gone is the plastic backer; in its place, a sturdy cardboard stand. Each calendar is now printed on FSC-certified paper. There is no shrinkwrap. The result is a calendar that is 100% recyclable. Each one of the titles for 2021 embodies Workman’s core values of creativity, craftsmanship, integrity—and now sustainability. From long-established partners, like Audubon and Sandra Boynton, to recent ones, including The New York Times, Atlas Obscura, Flow, and Rick Steves’ Europe, Workman matches customers with brands and ideas they love and love to see, year after year.
