What is World Book Day? 

World Book Day is a celebration of authors, illustrators, books, and reading. You can't beat sitting down with a good book and as technology advances, we're in danger of losing this amazing hobby.  The main aim of World Book Day is to encourage children to explore the pleasures that reading can envoke. 

Many children in the UK and Ireland don't have the opportunity to own a book; that's why, as part of World Book Day, book tokens will be sent to schools and nurseries. It's a chance to create a buzz around reading through games, quizzes, and fancy dress.  

Reading at Cavendish Health Care

At Cavendish Health Care, we absolutely love reading. When I asked staff members to nominate their favourite book, it created quite a buzz. Fond memories of books from childhood came up like The Famous Five, The Secret Seven, and  James and the Giant Peach. 

So, if you're already a vivacious reader or are inspired to visit your local library, here are some book recommendations from the Cavendish Health Care and Mobility at Sea team members. 

The Hobbit by  J. R. R. Tolkien

The Rats by James Herbert 

Jamacia Inn by Daphne du Maurier 

The Lie by CL Taylor

Acts of Faith by Erich Segal

The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman 

Second Glance by Jodi Picoult 

The Stone for Danny Fisher by Harold Robbins 

The Book of Five Rings  by Miyamoto Musashi 

So, why not try one of these adult novels and tell us what you think.
