We are slowly returning to the world of blogging after a little break. We love reading, we love books and we love fabulous news. Today is the day to take a breathe and announce the launch of 2016’s International Book Giving Day, which falls on the 14 February every year. This post is to let our incredible followers know that we will be launching a Book Project on the 14 February. The act of giving a book, is as easy as leaving a book for someone to find, or wrapping up a firm favourite and delivering it. I firmly believe that book by book we can create libraries for children all over the world, even in the most remote spots.
Together with our book loving readers we have been able to create a few libraries for communities that really need them. Just by asking our readers from all over the world, to contribute one book at a time, we have made a difference. This is a project that our followers are so good at, always super keen to join in. It is a big deal and something that all our readers can be proud of.
