World Book Night is 4/23/14 and it’s time to apply, if you would like to be a book giver.
World Book Night is an annual celebration dedicated to spreading the joy 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. In 2012, World Book Night was celebrated in the U.S., the UK, Ireland, and Germany.
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. (link)

I have done this two times already and found it very rewarding. The only thing that I donate is my time- to pick up the books and then distribute them. 20 books, that I chose from the 35 titles, are provided free of charge to distribute! I encourage you to get involved- it’s a great program!
