World Book Day is a charity event held annually in the United Kingdom and Ireland on the first Thursday in March. On World Book Day, every child in full-time education in the UK is given a voucher to be spent on books; the event was first celebrated in the United Kingdom in 1995.
- Did you know? The distinctive smell of old books is caused by the breaking down of lignin, a complex chemical present in paper and closely related to vanillin.
