World Book Day 2016!


I didn’t even realise it was WBD until my little brother told me on our way home from school today. It just reminds me of how long ago it was since Year Six because when I entered secondary school, they don’t celebrate it as much as they did in primary schools.

For those who don’t know about World Book Day, it’s a UK’s own version of World Book and Copyright Day (also known as International Day of the Book or World Book Days) On World Book Day, every child in full-time education in the UK is given a voucher to be spent on books. You can either get £1 off any book (I think) or you can get one of the WBD books which were made especially for today. I wasn’t a huge fan of last years’ books but judging from this year, I think I’ll definitely be getting these ones…
