World Book Night 2013 Books Announced

One of the highlights of this year has been participating in World Book Night. I was lucky enough to be chosen as a “giver” and distributed 24 copies of The Road by Cormac McCarthy. It was a great feeling and I loved being able to share how much I love reading and discovering new books and authors with people I wouldn’t normally discuss books. The list of books for World Book Night 2013 has been released today and there’s some great titles on there. Books that I already know and love, books that I have on my wish-list and some that I hadn’t heard of until today. I particularly love the fact that there’s young adult and graphic novels on the list – opens up an even bigger audience for World Book Night. A fabulous mixture and there’s definitely more for by wish-list here.

The Dark Judges – a Judge Dredd graphic novel
