How will you celebrate the 15th World Book Day?

World Book Day is a celebration! It's a celebration of authors, illustrators, books and (most importantly) it's a celebration of reading. In fact, it's the biggest celebration of its kind, designated by UNESCO as a worldwide celebration of books and reading, and marked in more than 100 countries all over the world.

Why not celebrate by seeking out a good read, either from the Library's English Literature section, or experiment with English translations of notable foreign authors?
