World Book Night is a national celebration of reading and books that takes place on this day every year. Up and down the country, it is an opportunity to celebrate the difference that reading makes to people’s lives.
Many people joined in with the newly launched Reading Hour and took time out to read alone or with others or share a book with family, friends or colleagues, by giving recommendations, encouraging someone to join the library or gifting a book.
Please continue to share your reading and inspiration on social media with the hashtag #WorldBookNight and check out the latest World Book Night tweets as they happen below!
