Whether or not your city or even country participates (yet!) today is World Book Day. If your community is part of it, go out and play. If not? Maybe you’re just as lucky: you can feel justified in grabbing some extra “me” time to read a book!
Didn’t get enough time to plan? Don’t despair: the UN’s World Book and Copyright Day is coming up on April 23rd. Irina Bokova, director general of the UN says, “Our goal is clear — to encourage authors and artists and to ensure that more women and men benefit from literacy and accessible formats, because books are our most powerful forces of poverty eradication and peace building.” You can get more information here.
