A couple of months ago I was delighted to hear I’d been selected as one of the 20,000 givers for World Book Night. For those who don’t know,
World Book Night is a celebration of reading and books which sees tens of thousands of passionate volunteers gift books in their communities to share their love of reading.
In 2012 World Book Night will be celebrated in the UK, Ireland, Germany and USA on April 23. In the UK, 20,000 passionate readers will gift 24 copies of one of their favourite books to encourage those who don’t regularly read to fall in love with reading.
From the 25 titles available, I chose to give out copies of Joe Simpson’s Touching the Void.
