On the 6th March, today, children of all ages will come together to appreciate reading as part of World Book Day. To mark this unique worldwide celebration of books and reading, we’ve teamed up with digital book store Nook and created a special ‘Holiday Book Selector’ app to help you choose a novel that’s perfect for you and your chosen destination.
World Book Day is actually designated by UNESCO and marked in over 100 countries all over the world. It’s a celebration of authors, illustrators, books and most importantly, a celebration of reading. We’ve partnered with Nook to create a tool that will show you a list of recommended books based on your holiday destination and the genre of books you love to read.
First of all, simply choose where you’re going on holiday from the drop-down menu – you can select from destinations all over the globe including Africa, Europe, America and Asia. Then choose a genre that you like – we’ve included adventure, children, classics, film, historical, romance, thriller and teenager. The app will then display suitable books based on your holiday information, each with a short description of the plot and characters. For example, if you’re a fan of books about romance and are about to head off to the Greek islands, then maybe ‘Captain Corelli’s Mandolin’ would be a perfect read for you?
The app then allows you to click through to the Nook website so that you can buy the ebook to take away with you on holiday! If you don’t own a Nook reader then don’t worry, you can download the Nook app, which is optimized for Android and Apple devices and allows you to shop for over 3 million books, magazines and newspapers and sync to your mobile or tablet easily.
Nothing beats lying on a beautiful beach completely engrossed in a great book, so use our unique Holiday Book Selector app to help you choose a book that’s perfect for you and your holiday – happy reading!
