World Book Night has been running for a few years now and is a way for people to share the books they love amongst people that may not have as many opportunities to read, or people who haven’t really ventured in to recreational reading in our local community. It’s a great cause and has already had some remarkable results. Visit the World Book Night website for more information at http://www.worldbooknight.org
Some of the library staff here at City College have been chosen as givers for this years World Book Night. This means that they have chosen a book that they love and on World Book Night they will be given 20 copies of the book to share amongst their chosen community.
Three members of the library staff have been chosen as givers and each week we will reveal a member of staff and the book they have chosen. This week, The Information Store’s Digital Resources Office Amy Straker has chosen the book ‘Me Without You’ by Jojo Moyes and she will be distributing copies of it here at the Information Store on 23rdApril!
“I chose mine because it is a great read, but with an unexpected story line. The cover looks like a light hearted tale of boy meets girl, but it is so much more than that. When Lou loses her job in a coffee shop she takes a job as a carer for the rather dashing Will, who has been injured in a motorcycle accident. They don’t hit it off, at all and Lou doesn’t know about the dark secret that Will has been keeping from her, that threatens to change everything. I hope it will appeal to students who want wouldn’t usually read for pleasure, and that the interesting plot will encourage students to take a copy, and hopefully pass it on…”
Reading books doesn’t have to be just for school or college, it’s a great thing to do in your spare time. You can lose yourself in exciting stories, become heroic characters and be transported to other worlds. If this sounds like something you would like to get involved in, make sure you come to the Information Store on the 23rd April!
Keep your eyes peeled on the Between the Lines blog to find out what the other books being given away will be!
