St. George, Bill Shakespeare and World Book Night. All in one day, 23rd April.
More than enough words have been written and spoken about any one of the three. Some titles on the list this year offer a brew to turn any night curled up by the fire into a stormy place populated by heroes and monsters. Others will take you to a different place

One of the books listed is an old favourite of mine. John le Carre's, Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy.
A classic narrative, and character, brought to life by Alec Guiness and Gary Oldman respectively. I enjoyed both portrayals. If I had to choose, Alec Guiness would tip the scale.
Enough of the movies, WBN is about the printed word, an annual celebration, so go celebrate!
PS, in my neck of the woods William's who have a reputation for being solid, reliable steady characters become 'Bill.'
