What is World Book Night? (Taken from the website)
World Book Night is a celebration of reading and books which sees tens of thousands of passionate volunteers gift specially chosen and printed WBN books in their communities to share their love of reading.
- To raise the profile of reading through a mass engagement project which works at a grass roots level to inspire those who don’t regularly read to do so
- To place books into the hands of those who don’t regularly read
- To raise the profile of reading for pleasure through a series of celebratory events
- To improve literacy in the UK and Ireland
- To bring communities together
I can't think of any reason for a book lover not to be involved in this process, I can't wait! These are the amazing books which will be given away this year:
