Exciting Ideas To Celebrate World Book Day

post-image

World Book Day (also known as World Book and Copyright Day or International Day of the Book) is an annual celebration that promotes the enjoyment of books and reading while also promoting books, copyright, and creativity. (Note that this is not the same as World Book Day, which occurs in March in the United Kingdom and Ireland.)

Every year, World Book Day aims to encourage everyone (especially young people) to discover the joy of reading and millions of people in over 100 countries around the world celebrate this special day!

When is World Book Day this year?

Every year on April 23rd, World Book Day is commemorated.

Why this particular day? This is a significant and symbolic date in world literature because it marks the passing of a number of well-known authors (for example: William Shakespeare, Miguel de Cervantes, Inca Garcilaso de la Vega, William Wordsworth, and many others). As a result, celebrating books on a day that also honours notable authors from around the world seems appropriate!

World Book Day Celebrations: 5 Exciting Ideas

Are you looking for some creative ways to commemorate World Book and Copyright Day? Here are 5 ways to celebrate April 23rd and all year long!

1. Get Access to Free Ebooks From All Over the World

For World Book Day, some booksellers and retailers offer free ebooks, and Amazon has already announced that they will be offering ten free ebooks from around the world this year.

Keep an eye on your favourite bookstores and retailers as World Book Day approaches, because they may be offering World Book Day free books or other exciting deals!

2. Take part in the #BookfaceChallenge on Twitter

Participating in this year's UNESCO #bookface challenge is another fun way to commemorate World Book and Copyright Day.

You may have seen this challenge before, but it basically involves photographing yourself with a book cover that blends into your surroundings. It's such a fun challenge, and it's so much fun to see everyone's creative ideas!

3. Participate in the World Book Capital Festivals

Every year on World Book Day, UNESCO chooses a country to be the World Book Capital for the year...

The spirit of World Book Day is then carried on by this city for an entire year by promoting reading and organising events/activities.

Tbilisi (Georgia) is this year's World Book Capital, with the slogan "Ok. So, what's the title of your next book?" They'll concentrate on library-related activities, as well as developing a cutting-edge digital project for turning books into games and restoring the first Georgian publishing house.

The celebrations begin on April 23rd, and we can all participate no matter where we are in the world thanks to the power of the internet!

4. Dress up as a literary figure

Looking for a fun, if not a little silly, way to commemorate World Book Day? If that's the case, you should think about dressing up as one of your favourite literary characters!

You can even go a step further and dress up your pets as literary characters if you want.

5. Pay a visit to one of your favourite bookstores

Another great World Book Day idea is to go to your favourite bookstore and buy books. There's never been a better time to support independent bookstores, and visiting a bookstore on World Book Day is a unique experience!
