Today is the 23rd April 2012 and it is World Books Day (WBD). A day were we celebrate the joy of reading.
I had completely forgotten the date till a lady at the train platform this morning handed me a free book to read and review, with no strings attached. The idea is that I read the book, review it online and if I want I can pass on the book for others to read.
The book is about the journey of a man across the U.K and I have only read the first page in which the man has arrived in England for the first time late in evening and is having trouble finding a place to stay.
I intend to read and review. But the review will come later in the summer with a bunch of other books that I hope to review.
Don’t forget to pick up a book today and Read! It doesn’t have to be fiction. Why not pick up an interesting non-fiction book on something new you’ve meaning to learn. Read anything! From religious books to something on pottery. The sky’s the limit.
