1. Read a book during the Reading Hour at 7-8pm on 23 April! Share what you’re reading on social media using #ReadingHour and #WorldBookNight to join the online celebration

2. Share books with someone else. This could be by gifting a book on Kindle, buying a National Book Tokens gift card or sending a book from an independent bookshop. You can buy a book from Hive and choose an independent bookshop anywhere in the country to support

3. Hold a virtual party with a literary theme – anyone for a pub quiz?

These are just a few ideas, but take a look at our resources page for more.
