Morning Meanderings… World Book Night Needs YOU!

Good morning!  What a night!  Navy Son is home until the 22nd and we had a dinner last night with him and his best friend Andy who is also home from the Navy at this time.  Brad (Navy son) was able to pick whatever he wanted for dinner and he chose Honduras hotdish, which we all love so easy and delicious!

This morning I wanted to talk a little but about World Book Night.  I love the thought World Book Night and did not participate last year but hope too (fingers crossed!!!) do so this year.  Here is the gist of World Book Night:

They need 50,000 book-loving volunteers to fan out across America on April 23, 2012! Just take 20 free copies of a book to a location in your community, and you just might change someone’s life.

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. And with a million free World Book Night paperbacks!

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! Please volunteer to be a book giver in the U.S. Sign up now to be a book giver.

Seriously fellow book lovers, what is not to like about this deal? 

I signed up a while back but received an email yesterday that they want and need more applicants.  I am passing the word on to you now.  The deadline to sign up is February 1, 2012 and then they will notify who is in on this deal.

I love the idea of one day in the world we are all handing out books… hopefully creating more book lovers. They have a list of 30 books you can choose from to be the one that you would like to hand out.  I would love to know, World book night list aside, what one book would you choose to hand out to your community that you think would create new readers?

Read more about World Book Night here, from the free book list to the FAQs. Thank you!

Today I have some reviews to write, a little catching up to do blog wise, and later working out with friends.  Tonight, we are going to a concert to raise money to help our communities homeless. 




A new post is up today….

What to do when there seems

to be no time to work out.

  1. The book I would pick to give away would be The Soldier’s Wife…it’s sure to inspire new readers and current readers to read more. 🙂

  2. Sheila, I signed up for World Book Night a while ago and I received the email saying I was one of the first 5,000 signed up too. I hope I get to give away some books!

Hmmmm... what do you think?
