Today across the UK, Ireland, Germany and the US almost 80,000 people will give away over 2 million books in the hope of spreading a love of books to new readers around their communities.
To those of us who love the written word the thought of not having books in our lives on a daily basis is alien. The books on this year's list are a brillant mix from contemporary fiction to classics. Hopefully, by the giving of one of these marvellous works, the amazing world of books can be brought to a whole new group of people.
I wasn't able to sign up as a 'giver' this year myself but to all of you out there who have, hope it goes well and you have loads of fun. I would be interested to hear some of your stories if you would like to share them.
