April 23 Is World Book Day

I am 100% clueless that 23 April is globally celebrated as the World Book and Copyright Day until I chanced upon Scott Main’s site while dropping an EntreCard. It is also known as International Day of the Book or World Book Day.

According to the World Book Day website for the UK and Ireland, the celebration, which is nearly two decades, has become firmly established as the biggest annual event promoting the enjoyment of books and reading.

Since I just discovered it now, I wish to share the information to you. Yeah, It is a bit late to blog it but for record purposes sake, now that I know it does exist, I am jotting it down.

You can hop to Wikipedia for details and history of connection between 23 April and books.

I hope my bibliophile and bookworm friends would find this information very useful.

Enjoy and keep on reading…
