World Book Night 2012

Today, or should I say tonight, is World Book Night. World Book Night is a celebration of books and reading which sees tens of thousands of people give books as gifts with their communities to spread the love of reading. This year world book night is being celebrated in the UK, Ireland, Germany and USA.

There are events all over the UK where copies of the 25 World Book Night Books will be given away for free.  You will find one such event in the University of Portsmouth Library where copies of Terry Pratchett’s Good Omens will be being distributed.
