World Book and Copyright Day

Here's a quick reminder, for all those who don't know. April 23rd is the UN designated World Book and Copyright Day. It's a symbolic day in the world of publishing and literature. April 23rd is the anniversary of the deaths of Shakespeare, Cervantes and Inca Garsilasco de la Vega, all of whom died in 1616. It is also the birth or death date of quite a number of prominent authors. How will you mark the day?
