It’s coming close to that time of year again. The day parents up and down the country discuss in hushed tones in quiet corners, shuddering over the ghosts of World Book Day past. Sadly, for most parents, the days when children were just given a voucher and had a book fair are done, it’s all about the costumes these days. Now, before you go delving into the dressing up box in a blind panic, here are some handy tips to help you get prepared.
We are avid bookworms here at World of Books, and many of us are setting our reading goals quite high this year. Many fantastic books hit our shelves last year, discovering new authors, up and coming authors or even the next in a series got us rather excited here at World of Books. We have compiled a list of some cracking books that will be hitting our shelves and TBR piles in 2019.
We are looking at our 10 scariest fictional characters in our blog this week. See if yours made our list below.
We are just putting our own celebrations for our Dads on hold and will raise a glass to those in the literary world who we can only admire as fictional fathers. Although most books feature a doting mother, we can’t help but nod to those amazing Dads and father figures we have all grown to love.
Firstly we would like to thank every single entry received into our competition for World Book Day 2018. We gave away £250 to 200 schools this year to help give children the head-start into reading that so many schools so desperately needed.
