World Book Day 2015

Denmark Reads
Today is World Book Day and the Danish Agency for Culture has decided to make it an extra special day for a lot of people.

100.000 books will be distributed today by volunteers to some of the 1,5 million Danes (approximately 40% of our population) who rarely pick up and read a book. It's 5 books by Danish authors that will each be distributed in 20.000 copies.

I am one of the remaining 60% but I still get a chance to read the books for free if I am interested - today the books are also available as e-book downloads offering me an opportunity to read books from authors that I have not yet had on my reading list.
