World book day is almost here, on the 4th April 2010 and there are many activities this year including 11 £1 book stories which will be read by the Authors or Actors online on the day while there is also a "Buy one Give one" promotion running now in conjunction with The Times, The Sun and News of the World.

Buy one Give One means you buy a paperback and get a second book free to donate to charity, vouchers are available in the participating newspapers and you then take the vouchers to a participating retailer (WH Smith, Waterstones or a participating Independant), buy 2 paperbacks for£9.99 or less and get the lower priced one free. Childrens books, reference, travel and academic books are excluded from the offer.

Vouchers will run from 4-7 March 2010 and can be redeemed up to and including 10 March 2010.
