It’s Wolrd Book Night tonight!! I’m so excited by the prospect of a worldwide event dedicated to reading! It’s so awesome!
“World Book Night is a national celebration of reading and books which takes place on 23 April every year. Books are given out across the UK with a focus on reaching those who don’t regularly read, and are gifted through organisations including prisons, libraries, colleges, hospitals, care homes and homeless shelters, as well as by passionate individuals who give out their own books within their communities.
World Book Night is run by The Reading Agency, a national charity that inspires people to become confident and enthusiastic readers.” – From the World Book Night website
The organisation has compiled a great list of books to check out here in case you need some inspiration.
Tonight is also Cosy Reading Night which is a lovely BookTube event/readathon/dunno what to call it from Lauren and the Books. Lauren is one of my absolute favourite booktubers, she has such a lovely friendly energy in all of her videos and she recommends great books.
I was so excited to join in in this one but I have a big disgusting cold sore on my lip so I am not doing any video until that thing is off my face! I will still take part though and maybe blog about it here or on Instagram.
It’s also Shakespeare’s birthday today (busy busy day in bookland today!) I was going to watch Macbeth but himself seems to have taken over the telly. Maybe tomorrow…
Anyway, I’m off to pick my books for tonight. I think I’ll read a graphic novel and some urban fantasy (it’s been awhile).
