International Book and Copyright Day

On 23rd April, we celebrate World Book and Copyright Day. Its origins are found in Spain because Cervantes died on this date, as well as Shakespeare and other writers. Later, the UNESCO declared 23rd April as a day to promote reading and publishing. In the UK, World Book Day is celebrated in early March, so that it doesn't clash with Easter holidays and students can properly celebrate it at school with their Language and Literature teachers. Here I'm suggesting you some interesting websites where you can read and create stories online, or even download books legally. So enjoyable!
