Spreading the love of reading person to person.

 

World Book Night is an annual celebration dedicated to spreading the love of reading, person to person. Each year on April 23, tens of thousands of people go out into their communities and give half a million free World Book Night paperbacks to light and non-readers.

World Book Night is about giving books and encouraging reading in those who don’t regularly do so. But it is also about more than that: It’s about people, communities and connections, about reaching out to others and touching lives in the simplest of ways—through the sharing of stories.

World Book Night 2014

I am so excited. This is my 3rd year to participate.  I picked up my free books, The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky, at Barnes and Noble yesterday. I also stopped by the used book to store to buy another selection of books, and my colleague Linda N. has already dropped off two bags of books to include in our give away to a local high school.

I’m so excited to do my little part to spread the love of reading.

 

 

What are you doing to spread the love of reading?
