Booktober 2014: Books Are My Bag

This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at CCCU chapter.
If you didn’t already know, October is the month of the book and that can mean only one thing: READING!
Here at Her Campus CCCU, we love to read and many of us are taking part in Booktober 2014 by picking four books to read this month. 
Editor, Melissa: “I’m reading Little Women by Louise M Alcott, Full Dark, No Stars by Stephen King, In The Springtime of the Year by Susan Hill, and One Hundred Names by Celcelia Ahern – as well as all the e-books I’m reading at the moment! I think it’s really important to get people reading because it improves their use of langauge, their spelling and grammar, but also their communication skills.” 
Social Media Manager, Ashleigh: “How I Live Now, That Last Fighting Tommy, City of Bones, and The Maze Runner.” 


This year, Books Are My Bag have been a huge part of Booktober, with bookshops around the country having special offers on their promotion books and even giving away free tote bags (available in the CCCU Bookshop with any purchase). 
“BOOKS ARE MY BAG is a nationwide campaign to celebrate bookshops. This collaboration between publishers, bookshops and authors and is the biggest ever promotion of bookshops.” (Books Are My Bag)
