We have a very exciting announcement! In a world-first, authors are now able to receive royalties on sales of used books thanks to AuthorSHARE – a groundbreaking new scheme designed to create a fairer deal for authors in the used book market.
In preparations for World Book Day on the 4th of March, we’ve been searching far and wide for costume inspiration! For a World Book Day that’s less-than-ordinary, with high street shops closed and perhaps slightly emptier pockets than usual, what better time to do-it-yourself?! Check our the fantastic sustainable costumes below.
Sustainable costumes for World Book Day can be made from all sorts around the house. You don’t need to be an expert sewing machinist or professional crafter. Gather the cardboard boxes from your latest deliveries, old felt from the kids’ activity sets, Cotton wool, toilet roll tubes, old sheets and poster paints, scissors, glue and eco-glitter… cut up and rework tired clothing into a brilliant new creation!
We don’t need to tell you what a rollercoaster of a year 2020 was; we’re all on the same ride! In the midst of all the uncertainty, one thing we’re certain of is how very fortunate we are at World of Books to be able to provide books to your homes.
In the last year, books have been a fantastic source of entertainment while we had to stay at home, courage and inspiration when we had to face the worst, education when we turned homes into schools, and the ultimate escape when we just needed a break from it all.
We’d like to look back on 2020 for all its good bits! So here’s a year in review of what we’ve been up to at World of Books.
