I've been wanting to get involved in World Book Night for some time now but it seems like it's always been and gone before I remembered it was coming. Also, it's never really touched me here in the valleys of South Wales. No one has ever talked about it, it doesn't get any press coverage - it's like it doesn't happen.
All that changed this year. This year, I finally had my first experience with World Book Night (although I still forgot it was coming. Lol.)
When I got to work yesterday, one of the women in my team told me that someone stopped her as she was getting off a bus and gave her a copy of The Eyre Affair in honour of World Book Night. Finally! WBN has reached Newport!
Maybe next year I'll remember to volunteer? (Probably not... But it's a nice thought!)
(World Book Day is still to come... March 7th - but I get the feeling from the website that it's intended for children while World Book Night is for adults. *shrug*)
