On World Book Night

In a world that sometimes seems over-burdened with conflict, World Book Night stands out as a precious beacon. It has two messages: one is that reading is sheer joy and the other is that the act of giving is intrinsically good. The energy that Jamie Byng and his team have brought to this lovely project is astonishing and wonderful. I hope this tradition goes on as long as books are made and read.
