A day for celebration
Hurrah! Well sort of. It’s World Book Day. What does that mean? Not sure but in the case of my son it seems it is a good excuse to have a book fair lasting all week in the school hall.
The idea of having a day that celebrates books is great but surely it should be world reading day? Buying a book is not quite the same as reading it – a quick glance at my bookshelves will back that statement up.
But there is a bit of razzmatazz and a cause for celebration and that cannot be that bad a thing so raise a book to World Book Day.
