BOOKS: Win a whole year's reading

World Book Day was launched in 1995, and this year nearly 40 countries are taking part. In Britain, the events include signing sessions, writing competitions, discounts, extended bookshop opening hours, a World Book Day bus travelling around London, and 14 million pounds 1 vouchers for schoolchildren.

To celebrate World Book Day, the Independent on Sunday has a year's worth of books to give away to 10 readers: a book a month, fiction and non-fiction, hardback and paperback, adults' and children's titles, to take you up to World Book Day 2000.
