World Book Day
Did you enjoy World Book Day (Thursday 2 March)? Eh? What? Mm...yes, I suppose to a lot of people this is another of those non-events on which twits in power waste taxpayers' money; but it does bring children into public libraries, which is a good thing.
Here's another incentive. Many public libraries hold book sales. The picture shown was used for the cover of Dante Gabriel Rossetti by Alicia Craig Faxon, published by Phaidon Press at £65. Guess who picked it up in a library book sale for peanuts.
