We love... the Booktrust website for information and inspiration!

Have you discovered the Booktrust’s website yet? It’s an excellent resource for anyone who loves books and reading, and even for those who don’t but might need to find out more!

Booktrust is an independent reading and writing charity. Its mission (taken from the About Us section of the website) is as follows:

"Booktrust inspires everyone to enjoy books, reading and writing and the lifelong benefits that they bring. Our aim is to build a literate, connected and creative society."

On their website, you can read interviews with authors and illustrators. You can look up winners and nominees for major literary prizes such as the Orange Prize for Fiction, the Roald Dahl Funny Prize and the Independent Foreign Fiction Prize. If you’re having trouble deciding what to read next, you can find recommendations in Books We Like (an excellent way to discover new favourites that you might not otherwise have come across!).

For parents, teachers and children, they also have an excellent section for children’s books. A brilliant way to keep up with what's new and also a good source of information if you’re looking for some themed booklists! So, if you’re looking for books that feature Asperger’s Syndrome, good books to read aloud, books about bullying, or books to cover a whole host of other topics, then Booktrust can help!

Go on, take a look at the Booktrust website and discover something new!
