If you believe that reading is important, can change lives and you want to support our work to engage as many people as possible in reading please support us by making a regular or one off donation through JustGiving.
Reading changes lives and improves opportunities, yet a third of households don't have a book in them. 35% of people in the UK don't read for pleasure.
World Book Night aims to change that by engaging passionate volunteers to put great books directly into the hands of hundreds of thousands of people who don't engage with reading, saying "this one's amazing you have to read it".
World Book Night is all about giving. The gift of the authors and publishers - worth millions - of the books. The gift of thousands of voluntary hours from our givers, bookshops and libraries. All so we can give the gift of a book into the hands of someone whose life it can change.
