World Book Night is an annual celebration which takes place on 23rd April each year. It is run by The Reading Agency to celebrate the power of reading, and to help get books into the hands of less passionate or less confident readers, or those who don’t own any books themselves. Books are given away in prisons, homeless shelters, care homes, hospitals, colleges, and many other locations across the UK.
The list comprises a diverse selection of books across paperback and audio for adults and young people. Other titles on the 2020 list include Death on the Nile by Agatha Christie, The Salt Path by Raynor Winn and On the Come Up by Angie Thomas.
