Happy World Book Night!
Tonight, all around the world, people will be celebrating and reading and enjoying BOOKS! Yes … those archaic paper things that are bound in the smelly glue … you probably have some gathering dust on a shelf somewhere. I am a firm believed in books (I think you have to be a bit of a nutter to work in publishing), and I am also a firm believer in the FUTURE of books. E-books and e-readers are great for some things, but they’ll never completely replace the physical book.
Because it’s National Book Night, we’re going to Trafalgar Square to take part in some cool activities. There will be writers and readers and authors and publishers — all just kind of hanging out together. And it’s not even raining right now, so that makes it extra good for a Friday night activity.
Why don’t you check out the website, World Book Night, and see if there any any activities taking place near you?
