Today is World Book Day in many countries. In the UK and Ireland, it’s a partnership among publishers, booksellers and interested parties that aims to promote books and reading. Despite the lousy weather, World Book Day 2018 promises to be brilliant. You can get a book for £2.50, or £1 if you have a £1 token. Also, because of the weather, books will be available until March 25. World Book Day mainly aims to promote reading and books among children and young adults. However, anyone can take part in it. You only need to share the love, get a book, or share a book with someone. And why not giving a book as a present to your friends?

You can also share your experience in sharing the love for books from today until the end of the month. You can give books, or you can just write all about them. The best, however, is to provide a novel to someone who isn’t used to reading much. That’s why choosing one of the books on the list is a good idea.
