I found out about World Book Night 2012 through a literary site and decided to apply to give out books during the event. The literary extravaganza will be held on April 23, 2012. I received an email yesterday stating that I was accepted as a, “World Book Giver.”
The organization’s website says, “The goal is to give books to new readers, to encourage reading, to share your passion for a great book. The entire publishing, bookstore, library, author, printing, and paper community is behind this effort with donated services and time. The first World Book Night was held in the UK last year, and it was such a big success that it’s spreading around the world!”
I am too excited about this opportunity to share FREE reading materials with my community. I will be able to giveaway 20 books this year.
The book selections that I chose for the giveaway include the following: *I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings, by Maya Angelou and *Kindred, by Octavia Butler.
If you are interested in receiving a free copy of one of the selected titles complete the following:
