If you read my blog or follow me on Twitter, you know I love to read. So in order to share my love for books with you guys, instead of writing a book review today, I want to share a bit of info on World Book Night.
World Book Night is actually today, April 23rd and it's a non-profit organization that "spreads the love and power of reading person to person through the giving of books every April 23rd." What they do is choose 30 books that include several different genres and that are for different age groups. This year's list can be found here. Then, people sign up to be Book Givers. If they are selected, they get assigned a book and get 20 free paperback copies of that book to hand out to light and non-readers.
I think this is a great project and I would have loved to be a book giver but since I found out about this project a week or two ago, I wasn't able to sign up to be a giver. Instead, I'm going to make a list of 10 books I highly recommend which will include one book from the World Book Night list, that way I'll be a Virtual Book Giver! Happy reading!
