Tomorrow is World Book Night!

World Book Night (WBN) is about spreading the love for reading. The idea is to celebrate and encourage reading by giving books away and creating events to inspire current readers and, in particular, spark the curiosity of new ones.

Mostly, reading for pleasure is an individual and personal thing. However, there is a wide community of booklovers out here crazy to share their passion for reading. In blogs like this one, bookshops, book clubs and libraries you can chat, read about books, review and recommend them. World Book Night is the giant, even better, version of this. It annually celebrates books and reading with a massive shebang! :) So tomorrow night, the 23rd of April, several events are due to take place all over the UK and the US to celebrate reading and books.

Music Monday - Sweater Weather by Kina Grannis

Kina Grannis is quickly becoming one of my favourite singers. The half Japanese half American singer-songwriter has a fantastic YouTube channel where she does both covers of other people's songs (like this one, originally recorded by The Neighbourhood) and her own stuff.

While you are checking her MTV award winning channel, check Dear River (love it!!!), one of her newer songs launched earlier this month, and In Your Arms, one of her older ones. The video for the latter was made using 288,000 jelly beans!! :P

I hope you had a good Monday and a fantastic Easter. :)
