What to read this World Book Day


2nd March is World Book Day and over the past years it really has become quite ‘a thing’.

While children around the world celebrate their favourite books and characters at school and home, we think that grown-ups should get in on the act too.

Reading is the perfect way of relaxing, escaping, educating and chilling out. It is a life skill we learn as infants, but something that becomes a hobby for many.

Many people now read from a Kindle, others still love nothing more than turning paper pages and for some, there doesn’t seem to be enough time in the day for reading.

What a shame.

To help you get the most out of books this World Book Day, we have put together a list of some of our favourites at Pure Beauty.

We have included quite a range from world classics to brand new novels, stories for little people and big ones too but whatever you like to read, we think you will find something that is perfect for you.
