[Event] World Book Day 2015

Apparently, there’s this! It was celebrated on March 5 in the UK and Ireland. It’s marked to be celebrated on April 23 by UNESCO, I think. I’m a little confused by the dates. But either way, it’s better late (or early) than never, right? Any time is a good time to celebrate books and reading anyway. 🙂

So what is World Book Day? The website says:

World Book Day is a celebration! It’s a celebration of authors, illustrators, books and (most importantly) it’s a celebration of reading. In fact, it’s the biggest celebration of its kind, designated by UNESCO as a worldwide celebration of books and reading, and marked in over 100 countries all over the world . . .  It’s all about getting kids closer to the books and authors they already love, and letting them discover more books and authors they’ll love every bit as much in the future.

I love to read. I think books are awesome! And I think everybody should have the opportunity to read books and let their imagination run free.
