World Book Night and #readinghour


Tonight is #WorldBookNight, promoted by @readingagency, celebrating the power and many benefits of reading and aiming to inspire people all around the world to read more.

As they say, ‘Reading for pleasure and empowerment makes us more aware and informed. It helps grow our imaginations. It makes us more empathetic and understanding of other people and cultures. It supports our health and well-being. It increases our ability to learn new skills. It helps us to communicate our ideas more effectively. It opens doors. It brings joy.’

Their work is so important. Please get involved and take part in #readinghourbetween 7 and 8pm tonight, 23 April.

Read whatever you fancy, take some time out to read by yourself, read as a family, meet as a bookclub, or listen if audiobooks are more your thing. And, most importantly, enjoy it!
