Spread the love of reading through World Book Night

Fellow book lovers and readers unite!

One of my colleagues turned me on to World Book Night 2013 and the opportunity to give away 20 copies of a new book to light readers or non-readers in our community, particularly those without the means or access to purchase a book themselves. In 2012, its first year in the U.S., “25,000 passionate volunteers across America give a total of half a million books within their communities to those who don’t regularly read.”

April 23rd is Shakespeare’s birthday. Maybe it will be your day to share a story with someone who doesn’t usually read but would like to. Apply to be a giver through January 25th.
