World Book Day (WBD) was designated by UNESCO as a worldwide celebration of books and reading, and is marked in over 100 countries around the globe.
WBD is a partnership of publishers, booksellers and interested parties who work together to promote books and reading for the personal enrichment and enjoyment of all.
World Book Day is a day that we set aside every year to celebrate books, reading, authors and illustrators.
This year in South Africa it will be celebrated on Wednesday 23 April 2014
This is the 17th time it has been held.
