World Book Day!

Happy Book Day! How about a few links, and offers, to celebrate??

First out is the news that the Book Day Quick Reads have been shown to increase literacy by more than 16% - according to a study released yesterday by the Book Day organisers. (More on BookBrunch)

This years Quick Reads include one in Irish from O’Brien Press, as well as The Tyrannosaurus Drip Songbook and a bunch of flip books (two books in one) including a new Winnie the Witch adventure, a Spooks tale, an Alfie Green story and Jenny Valentine’s Ten Stations. Each book still only costs €1.50 - who could say no??

And if all that wasn’t enough for ye, Mercier Press have Susan Connolly (of Damsel fame) and Kieran Mark Crowley (the man behind the brilliant Colm and the Lazarus Key) in Dun Laoghaire today - and just because of the day that’s in it they are offering 10% off certain titles today, most notably:

And - finally - congrats to Matt Haig’s Shadow Forest won the Book I Couldn’t Put Down Category in the Blue Peter Book Awards.
