It’s #WorldBookNight and early today, I gave my Michael Palmer collections to two new friends & readers, Kareen Marzan & Mika David.
And to celebrate this occasion, I am reading James Patterson’s Maximum Ride Book 1: The Angel Experiment.
Question: What is World Book Night?
World Book Night is a celebration of reading and books which sees tens of thousands of passionate volunteers gift specially chosen and printed books in their communities to share their love of reading. World Book Night is celebrated on April 23. In 2013 it is being celebrated in the UK, Ireland and the USA.
World Book Night is about giving books and encouraging reading in those who don’t regularly do so. But it is also about more than that: it’s about people, communities and connections, about reaching out to others and touching lives in the simplest of ways, through the sharing of stories.
