World Book Day 2012

Happy World Book Day!

A day to celebrate books and reading (I know I’m preaching to the converted here, fellow writers, but you can help spread the word!), a day of free books for children, and a day to try and convert people to the cause!

The idea of World Book Day is to “promote books and reading for the personal enrichment and enjoyment of all”. asically to get people excited about reading!

One of the main focuses of WBD is to persuade children to pick up a book and get lost in a story. To find that magic we all experienced and fell in love with as children. With closing libraries, and technology taking over every aspect of our lives, this is more important that ever. We need to help them discover how astounding a good book can be, and stoke their passions for good novels while they’re still young.
