Happy World Book Day! As an avid reader, I have to say that I absolutely adore this day. I don’t need an excuse to celebrate books, but it’s great that there is one! It doesn’t matter how young or old you are. World Book Day should be an excuse to read some of those books you’ve added to your growing reading list. You have to start somewhere! So take a few minutes out of your busy lives today. Pop down to your local bookshop or browse Amazon’s incredible library. Or maybe you can crack open one of those novels you’ve had sitting, unopened, on your shelf for years. Whether you have an e-reader or you’re going to check out some books from your local library, today is the day.
But many of us face a dilemma: we do want to read, but we have no clue where to start! Believe me, I know that feeling. There are so many books to read and so little time! Or you signed up for an email newsletter years ago and now you’re swamped with endless suggestions. Maybe you just need a little more info on the book before you commit to it. Whatever your reason, it can be nice to get some ideas from real people instead of machines pumping out promotion emails. That’s where I come in. I’ve read thousands of books over my short life. Some of them were very good and some of them were very bad. Most of them were somewhere in the middle.
Here are some of my favourite books and why I think you should read them this World Book Day.
