Being a World Book Night 2015 Volunteer

This year I took the plunge and applied to be a World Book Night Volunteer. I chose The Queen’s Gambit by Elizabeth Fremantle being a history fan and books about Catherine Parr are lacking in that genre.
Here is the books in the box I collected from my local Waterstones

So then I had to decide who I was going to hand them out too. I started with people I knew that didn’t read often because of not having the time for it. But the majority I decided to give to people who work in charity shops.

I wasn’t sure how they were going to be received. Mostly it was not understood why I was doing this but no one declined taking one. I think if I did it again I’d pick one venue that I could interact properly with possible recipients.

It was a major honour to have been chosen as a World Book Night 2015 Volunteer. I hope someone who wasn’t a reader before is enjoying their book
