Obviously books are unimaginably cool and the gateway drugs to happiness, success, awareness and all sorts of weird things.

Can we do something @does for #WorldBookDay? I'll be there if so

I would like to organise a reading day in the events room.

  • AM session and PM sessions.
  • Fifteen minute reading sessions (maybe that's too much - 5?)
  • People read from the book(s) or poetry they love.
  • Open access of course, we live stream and record.

I strongly suspect that this can be improved upon. Can we get some schools or other groups involved to come and see us?

As it’s a Thursday it’s likely that the Sharks would still want to use the room but they may be interested in getting involved somehow.

Just went and had a chat to Toni who is the Sharks leader. She says she loves World Book Day, so may well be interested in trying to fit something together.

If you want to drop her a line, @ajlennon, her email is @toni.winder@salesharks.com
