It’s World Book Day today. I’m sure you knew that. We’re having a book swap in our office – people have brought in books they are happy to give away, others can take what they want, and anything left over goes to a charity shop. At home we’re in the middle of having new book shelving up, and we have so many books as it is that I think I’d be in the spare room if I brought any more in! But it’s a great idea. There’s a nice article about World Book Day over on europe.org.uk which mentions the European Literature Night we’re involved with in May. So Happy World Book Day to everyone. Here’s a question – what’s the one book you would recommend everyone read before they die? I guess mine would be (gosh this is quite difficult, isn’t it…) erm… probably Northern Lights (and the other His Dark Materials books) by Philip Pullman.
