World Book Night Titles Announced for 2013

The titles of the 20 books that givers will be gifting on World Book Night 2013 have been announced today. The list for next year has been put together with accessability in mind and for the first time features a graphic novel as well as a Quick Read.

As usual volunteers will be asked to apply to be a giver for the evening and, if accepted will be handing out twenty volumes of a title.  This has been reduced from the twenty-four of last year and the whopping forty-eight of the first year. Twenty books should be a bit easier to carry! Further details can be found on the World Book Night website.
