World Book Night

W is for: World Book Night 2014

BlwOJvMIEAA7-RXWorld Book Night is an international event held on 23rd April. I heard about it this time, last year while watching a video by booktuber booksandquills. Now I’d heard of World Book Day and remember the £1 books that we could get in school with our voucher when I was a child but never heard of World Book Night. So, World Book Night is when a volunteer is given 18 copies of a book and then must do their best to hand them out to people who don’t normally read. You may leave the books in places if you like to too to see if passers-by pick it up.

In about November last year I applied to be a volunteer and found out I was successful in late February. I was to give away copies of Geezer Girls by Dreda Say Mitchell. It’s a book that I haven’t read but I loved the sound of it from the synopsis so was looking forward to handing it out around my University and the surrounding area.
