IF you did not know, it was World
Book Day in the UK and Ireland on Tuesday 4 March, 2010. The idea of
World Book Day is to get more young people reading books. School
children of all ages and some pre-school groups at participating
schools were given support material including the World Book Day £1
Book Tokens. We popped over to Pritchards, Formby, who are one of
the hundreds of book shops involved, to see the tokens being spent.
