6 March 2014 is World Book Day, a day that celebrates books, reading, authors, and illustrations!
Reading is also a popular subject in art, and many artists show the different ways people enjoy their books. Where do you like to read books?
Maybe you like reading together at home with your friends or family, like these two children here.

Maybe you enjoy big books in a quiet room!
