Last year, a new tradition began in communities across the U.S., England and Ireland  — a tradition created with the sole purpose of spreading the love of reading and books to others.


World Book Night is a volunteer effort involving authors, publishers, literary agents, booksellers, librarians and above all, readers that will culminate on Tuesday, April 23, with the distribution of hundreds of thousands of free books.
