If you work for a library, prison, college, care home, youth centre or other organisation who can reach people who don’t regularly read, you can apply to receive books on behalf of your organisation to celebrate World Book Night 2018. Simply fill in the form below and please note:

  • If successful, you’ll receive copies of one of the titles from our list by selecting preferences from the full list. Please think carefully about which of the books would work best for the audiences you intend to reach
  • You must select your top 5 preferences from our list of books, and you can also let us know if you’d be happy to receive any of the titles
  • We’re offering small and large allocations of books, so that organisations of different sizes can choose the most suitable quantity. You should select either a small (80 copies) or large (160 copies) quantity of books
  • Applications will remain open until 31 January, and successful organisations will be informed in February
  • Books will be delivered in early-mid April 2018 and we will provide specific delivery information closer to the time
  • We are only able to accept one application per organisation, so please co-ordinate carefully with colleagues
  • We’ll be sending all of our books to organisations who work directly with people who don’t read regularly or have access to books, but if you can still take part as an individual by giving books of your choosing and which you provide on 23 April. Tell us about your choices on our our Goodreads shelf
