Happy World Book (and Copyright) Day!

 As a mad reader, librarian, publisher and all things bookie, I love that there’s a World Book Day! It’s actually World Book and Copyright Day, which I find harder to be excited about because I don’t think copyright is keeping up with the global village – I believe in the rights of producers to have ownership of their work – just not sure how it best works in today’s world. It’s an exciting time to live in though, with things like Creative Commons blazing trails…

BUT – Happy World Book Day – go read a book, buy a book, download a book, share a book! Donate to global literacy (which you can do by purchasing books at Better World Books and thus get something to read for your money!) or visit a library today – enjoy books in all their incarnations.
