I will be on a cruise in the carribean. Sitting on the deck with a book in one hand and a frozen drink in the other ??
I am not in the least bit jealous!!!
I think I’ll read! ?
Reading sounds good to me.
We don’t have that in the United States anymore. ?
Can’t we just declare it – and read!
Yes. Read!! It was so cool how we could pass out books.
That is such a shame.
didnt know that was thing
I’ll read, just as every other night :):):)
What is that?! I’m intrigued
Probably just read?
I might watch TV just to be contrary???
I didn’t know this was a thing? April 23rd is my moms birthday. ?
April 23rd is my birthday!
It’s a good day all around I guess! ?
And Shakespeare’s birthday….which is why the date was chosen I think.
How cool is that! We learn something new everyday. ☺️
I gave out copies of The Book Thief in 2012, but not been a book giver since. Not sure what’s happening as they changed things a bit last year.
A few people have asked what it is…….. It is an international night where people are encouraged to read, get together to discuss books, give out books etc. Different countries and places within do different things. For example where I live in Brighton UK our local library will be having a photo booth where you can have your pic taken with your current read……pics then put on collage on wall. Other local libraries near me are having book quiz nights. You can also volunteer to give out free books. Some people just get together with friends for a ‘bookish’ evening they arrange themselves.
I think the date was chosen to coincide with the birth/death date of Shakespeare. Anyway I recommend everyone to google World Book Night 2018 to see if their local community is participating. X
I’ve not heard of that before it sounds good though.
Unless my hockey team is in the playoffs, reading

Gift someone a book
