World Book Night

World Book Night is on April 23 in the UK, Ireland and the USA.

images[4]World Book Night is about giving books and encouraging those who have lost the love of reading – or are yet to gain it

It is a celebration of reading and books, where volunteers gift books to people in their communities and is run by The Reading Agency.

Look at the 20 books that have been chosen for this year – and borrow them from one of our libraries if you are not lucky enough to be given one.

Do you think it is a good choice which will appeal to those who are being encouraged to read?

Have you applied to be a book ‘gifter’? What title did you choose and who will you give them to?

  1. What a brilliant list – something to suit everyone! I love Roald Dahl’s short stories, so readable, gripping, and normally with an astonishing twist at the end. Agatha Christie is also a classic choice, perfect if you want to start reading detective fiction and are looking for something accessible and fun that also gives you something to puzzle over! Great way to get people into reading.
