Tweet us for the chance to win copies of our 20 World Book Night titles!
This year we’re asking authors to tell us about their reading journey; about the book that first turned them on to reading, the books that they have been inspired by along the way and how reading has shaped them. We’re also asking people to tell us which book would set a reluctant reader on their reading journey.
Tweet us at @worldbooknight with the hashtag #readingjourney, and tell us about your own reading journey and win the 20 World Book Night Titles listed below.
