World Book Day – 6th March 2014


This Thursday (6th March 2014) will be the UK’s 17th annual World Book Day. The event will take place across the country, with children and adults alike celebrating illustrators, authors, and most importantly, reading itself. Take a look at their 10 books that are available at only £1!

Those who find themselves in Manchester this Thursday can drop by Piccadilly Station where a giant cage will be setup promoting author Sally Green’s latest hit thriller ‘Half Bad’. If you are one of the lucky people who quote ‘witches’ at the stand, you could claim one of 100 free copies of the text! The 100 books will be distributed on a first come/ first served basis. One copy per person, so keep your eyes peeled!


‘Half Bad’ has already been sold through 45 languages, and is fast becoming the most talked about debut of the year. An exciting new trend for the teen/adult cross-over market, ‘Half Bad’ will do for witches what ‘TWILIGHT’ did for vampires:

‘A book about witches with no owls and not a pair of round spectacles in sight. The new Hunger Games, I suspect… Brilliant and utterly compelling – I loved it’ Kate Atkinson (author of Life after Life and Behind the Scenes of the Museum)

 ‘Take our word for it, this book is going to be huge.’ Stylist

 ‘rejoice: the inheritor to Stephenie Meyer’s crown has arrived’ The Times

So pay a visit to Manchester Piccadilly if you are passing through, and celebrate World Book Day with what is expected to be this years best seller!
