I learned about this amazing effort by the charity World Book Night Ltd when I was still in London, towards the end of my study (early 2011). The process started by inviting people to nominate the books that they love, and the books receiving the highest votes would make it to top 100. The books would then be shortlisted, and the selected books would be given free on that night. The interesting part is that everyone can register to be a 'giver', whom will be given free books that he/she loves to be distributed to family and friends. What a great way to encourage reading, and at the same time to promote the titles (though many of them need not any introductions!).
This is happening again this year, let's see the books selected for WBN 2012:

So looking at the long list, it looks like my reading list is still a longg way to go.
Happy reading everyone!
