World Book Day is an opportunity for people to celebrate the education, imagination and information that books can provide.
There are a whole host of events and activities you can get involved with, whatever your age. They include Meet Talk Give (http://www.bookaid.org/cms.cgi/site/getinvolved/adultreaders2011.htm), an easy fundraising initiative that anyone can follow with their friends or book group. Or there are the ten new books in the Quick Reads series to try, from which proceeds go to World Book Day.
