Today is World Book Day which is a celebration of authors, illustrators, books and reading. It was designated by UNESCO as a worldwide celebration of books and reading, and is currently marked in over 100 countries all over the world.
Schools, libraries and bookshops all around the world are marking today with readings and events taking place so check out your local area. Or if you can’t make it out you can watch live online readings here
I think books are the best presents so to celebrate I dug out an old copy of one of my favourites and lent it to my mum so give someone you love a book and Happy World Book Day – now back to my latest The Corrections by Jonathan Franzen!
