World Book Night 2020

World Book Night is a national celebration of reading and books that takes place on 23 April every year. Up and down the country, everyone from libraries, local businesses, health organisations and many more celebrate the difference that reading makes to people’s lives.
World Book Night is run by The Reading Agency, a national charity that tackles life’s big challenges through the proven power of reading.

This year will be a bit different. As many things in 2020, this year’s World Book Night will be digital. They may not be able to do the usual big meet up, but instead they are encouraging the nation to share in the pleasure of enjoying a book – in print, or in audio. Join in their Reading Hour at 7pm, taking time out to read alone or with others. And share a book with family, friends or colleagues, by giving recommendations, encouraging someone to join the library or gifting a book. 

We’re very pleased to tell you, that you will be able to find 20 of the titles as eBooks and/or eAudiobooks through the BorrowBox app – the Hampshire Libraries’ eBook provider. Have a look at this year’s titles below, and why not share what book you will be reading on Thursday 23 April; will it be one of these, or are you reading something different?
Tell us in the comments section below!

Will you join in on the #ReadingHour at 7pm on Thursday 23 April?

  1. Thanks for this, I reread “The Hitchiker’s Guide To The Galaxy” in around 2014 after having first read it at school. Its hilarious and quirky, and particularly good for anyone interested in physics!
