Through World Book Night we are aiming to reach the 35% of adults in the UK who don't regularly read. In order to find out more about people's reading habits we commissioned OnePoll to survey 2000 British men and women.
Having joined us in January 2014, Sue Wilkinson is about to experience her first Summer Reading Challenge as CEO of The Reading Agency. Here she writes about her hopes for children to find new books and gain confidence in recommending reads to others.
We welcome contact from media professionals. We can provide expert comment and interviewees on the importance of reading and libraries. For all media enquiries please contact our communications agency, FMCM or call 0207 405 7422
