Still have doubts? Then read this quote from Sara Waters, author of Fingersmith, and feel the love:

“World Book Night is a really extraordinary thing, an idea beautiful in its simplicity and wonderful in its implications: a national celebration of reading, of the sharing of books, literary passions and ideas.”
