The event aims to encourage and develop reading and raise awareness of using books as a tool for critical thinking. It will also celebrate appreciation for readers, writers, publishers, distributors, and other affiliates of the publishing industry.

The holiday was approved in February by Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung. It will occur every year on April 21.
