World Book and Copyright Day

By establishing April 25th as the international day to celebrate reading and writing, UNESCO is trying to promote reading, publishing and the protection of intellectual property. “The idea for this celebration originated in Catalonia where on 23 April, Saint George’s Day, a rose is traditionally given as a gift for each book sold.”

Another interesting project promoting reading (and involving not spending much money!) is Book Crossing. Read and release! Check out their website to find out more about them!

Finally, support bookshops in Getafe! Don’t buy your books in great department stores! 🙂
