Enjoy World Book Day with a good reading!

The World Book is celebrated every 23rd of April, a symbolic date in remembrance of the deaths of two major authors: William Shakespeare and Miguel de Cervantes. World Book Day was first designated an international event by UNESCO in 1995. The aim of UNESCO by celebrating this Day is to promote reading, publishing and the protection of copyright.

In UK as well as Ireland, the day is celebrated on the first Thursday of March instead of April 23. April 23 is the St. George’s Day in UK, and therefore, to avoid a clash with it, the day has been moved in UK as well as Ireland.
