Today is World Book Day. As you know by the whole Booktober Challenge – I love Books. This is the only day in the whole of the year (nearly) that I wish I was young enough to go to Primary School. If you have no idea why, it is because today all primary school characters get to dress up as their favourite book character. How wonderful. I would of course do this but I am not sure it would go down to well at work.
As well as dressing up as your favourite book character – by the way I would so dress up as Where’s Wally (Waldo)? World Book Day is used to empathise the importance of literature in the the lives of our children and young people, to promote reading and creative writing.
So, in honour of World Book Day, I am going to give you a list of some of the books I am planning to read during 2017.
The What Is Hoped For Reading Shelf
THE BIBLE – I am Currently Reading this – a little everyday. I am now on Deuteronomy. Apparently if you read 3 to 4 chapters everyday you will complete it within a year. I will let you know.
WAR AND PEACE – I have owned this book for a number of months now. I just can’t bring myself to read it. I am not a huge fan of Russian Literature but I really need to give it another go.
BEFORE I GO TO SLEEP, S J Watson – Mother gave me this book to read ages ago. The problem is my reading time is before I go to sleep and the title scares me.
THE DEATH OF ROBIN HOOD, Angus Donald – The last book in the Outlaw Chronicles and I admit I am putting it off. I don’t want to say goodbye to this series just yet.I have loved it so much.
THE DANDELION YEARS, Erica James – I was given this book last year, recommended by a work colleague. Really looking forward to reading this.
THE LITTLE HOUSE, Philippa Gregory – Another recommendation.
If you have any other recommendations for great books let me know.
