Happy World Book Day!

I completely forgot that it was today until I logged onto Twitter and discovered hundreds of tweets about it! Oops! I have been very busy lately though, as I started a new job last week and I’ve been doing a lot of training!

So I’ve not read anything for a few days, since I finished “The Goldfinch” at the weekend – I will write a review for that when I have more time!

You may have seen in my Weekly Bookish Round-up from last week that I was lusting after a full set of the Narnia books after seeing them in The Works for £7.99. Well, I went back today after work and bought it! Yay!

Beautiful illustrations!

It’s exactly the same design as the one I (stupidly) got rid of when I was a teenager, so I was desperate to own it again. It brings back fond memories of a childhood holiday during which I first discovered the series when I was given the books by my parents. I can’t wait to re-read the series and to see how different it is reading them as an adult!

So true! (But I’m still happy to work because I can’t sit around reading all the time!)

I came across this picture the other day on Grammarly’s Facebook page:

I agree with all of these ideas!

However, I would also like to add in some of my own:

6. Bookshop buses and mobile libraries would drive around the country, stopping in remote locations so that everyone has easy access to books.

7. A “book hangover” would be a medically recognised affliction and a legitimate excuse to not go to work or school.

8. If you bought a certain amount of books, you would get a free bookshelf.

Is this a fun game or what?!

Have you got any to add to the list?!
