World Book Night, April 23rd 2013 - The Books
World Book Night are very proud to announce their 2013 list of titles - 20 brilliant books by amazing writers. We hope you like it as much as we do, see some old favourites but above all enjoy discovering what might become new favourites. Alongside some of the very best fiction and non-fiction they've also included two firsts - a graphic novel (Judge Dredd) and a Quick Read (Last Night Another Soldier...).
Application to be a giver has also opened and will close on 23rd January 2013, but they would encourage you to apply as soon as you can. Quite simply, the earlier you apply the more likely you are to get your first choice of book!
They've also relaunched their website to offer a much better experience to all their users. It's now mobile friendly (and easier to get round on your computer too) and they have lots of tips for helping you fill in your application and decide how you want to take part in World Book Night. If you have any questions please consult their FAQs.
