Bananas About Books!
World Book Day 2005 will take place on Thursday 3rd March.
2005 will see World Book Day’s eighth year as the biggest annual celebration of books and reading in the UK and Ireland. For specific information about Ireland, please click here.
Always keen to grow and to build upon previous year’s successes, World Book Day will have an exciting additional element for both children and adults – Spread the Word.
Giving and receiving a recommendation of a favourite book is a real pleasure and it’s never been easier. Pick up one of our eight special postcards at any of our bookshop, library or other partners, look for it as an insertion in one of your usual newspapers or magazines or click here to send an e-card to a friend or colleague.
The updated archive of the last two years’ fantastic World Book Day Online Reading Festival is also now available on www.worldbookdayfestival.com. You can see many of your favourite authors for both adults and children talk about their work, influences and the pleasure of books and reading.
Happy World Book Day!
Why not take that half finished book off the shelf and make a new start, or head down to the library or bookstore for something new!
Alternatively, you could just go about your daily business given that almost every day is dedicated to something or other. That’s no fun though :)
