We have spent more time than ever in our houses this past year, but books provide a way to travel without leaving our rooms. Books and reading are also a brilliant way of connecting with friends and family even if we can’t spend time together. Here are some ideas for building a reading community, online and in person.
If these conversations spark some ideas or recommendations please share them with us on social media using #WorldBookDay or by contacting us on [email protected]
We want to know how you are creating your reading communities so we’re asking you to share with us your photos that show how you are sharing reading – whether that’s online, in person or even on your phone!
Our Show Your Shares competition is running for the month of World Book Day, with prizes given out every week for the best story shares with a different theme. Will you and your friends help to influence others to read in a new way? Find out how to enter at worldbookday.com/show-your-shares from 17 February.
Follow us on Twitter @WorldBookDayUK and Instagram @worldbookdaysocial for inspiring content and updates on World Book Day events and activities.
