World Book Night - deadline for Giver applications is Friday 1/25

Just a quick shout out for World Book Night USA this April 23, 2013.   The organizers have extended the deadline until this Friday, Jan. 25, 2013.

Sign up to be a giver, to hand out 20 copies of a book that you particularly enjoyed to help spread a love of reading. What could be better?

This is the second year of WBN USA.  I remember the excitement of planning and actually going up to strangers to offer them copies of The Book Thief.   I'd been a bit shy and awkward at the start but some people really lit up when hearing about the book and how they could share it with their older kids.  It was an amazing experience and I hope to be able to do it again this year.

Curious?  Want to see what books are will be handed out?  Want to join up?  Head to WBN USA's website at

  1. What book did you choose for this year? Last year I had Hunger Games, this year I went with Looking For Alaska.
