Did you know it’s World Book Night tonight? For the third year running, on the anniversary of Shakespeare’s birth, and death, millions of books will be given away by book-lovers around the world to encourage people to try something new or get back into reading again?
Rob and Kate have been lucky enough to have been awarded books to give away every year; for 2013, Kate has Noughts and Crosses by Malorie Blackman, a dystopian tale of teenage relationships against a background of segregation, and Rob has Casino Royale by Ian Fleming, a classic Bond tale of espionage around the roulette table.
Tonight, we’re at Slack Space in Colchester, giving away our books at the Great Book Bang and Bard Bash. Check the World Book Night website for the full list of books for 2013, and to see if there are any events taking place near you.
