World Book Night

World Book Night will take place on 23rd April and I for one, am very excited!

  • 19% of readers say that reading stops them from feeling lonely.
  • Regular readers for pleasure have report fewer feelings of stress and depression than non-readers, and stronger feelings of relaxation from reading than from watching television or engaging with technology.
  • Adults who read for just 30 minutes a week are 20% more likely to report greater life satisfaction.

I am fairly new to the reading scene myself. I started picking up books again in 2022 and I have not looked back! I love the feeling of getting lost between the pages and really switching off from the world around me. There are so many benefits to reading for fun and I am here for them!

On World Book Night between 7pm-8pm GMT I will be taking part in #ReadingHour! I will be dedicating the hour to reading and relaxing with a nice hot cup of tea, my favourite candle lit and a cosy blanket! Be sure to take part across social media, share your pictures and use the hashtag!
