World Book Night 2013!
World Book Night America 2013 is next Tuesday. 25,000 volunteers will be heading out into 6,000 US towns and cities to hand out copies of wonderful books to people who are traditionally non-readers.
Both my husband and I participated last year, and we’re doing it again. Last year, we both picked “A Prayer for Owen Meany” to hand out, and had a great time perusing Lakeview and surprising people with free books.
This year, we chose different selections. He chose Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett’s “Good Omens,” and I chose Sandra Cisernos’ “The House on Mango Street.” While we’re excited to head out into the world next week, I’m actually still hoping I can give my books to a local women and children’s shelter – TBD!
Spread the love of reading. Change some lives. Meet some people.
World Book Night is awesome. 🙂
