At a time when life seems ever more hectic and fast-paced I believe books offer a sanctuary and an education for the soul. Books can show us how to laugh, to cry, to love, and ultimately, books become part of our lives and our very being. I believe we need books now more than ever before and I am passionate about sharing this love of reading with those who rarely fall in love with a book.
This is my response to the question ‘why do you want to be a volunteer’ in my application to volunteer for World Book Night 2016. If successful, this will be the fifth consecutive year I have volunteered to give out books to the community through this organisation. You can find out more and register to be a volunteer here.
