I’m handing out The Stand by Stephen King in Hernando Beach, Florida
Oh Vicki you have to get pics! That is going to be so much fun!
I can only imagine how confused a bunch of Taiwanese people would be if I stood outside handing them free books in English. Just thinking about it makes me want to do it (I would if it weren’t for the fact that it would be a waste of good books).
LOL Ryan…. someday I want to hear the story of how you are living there… did you move there? Born there?
I will be giving out Ender’s Game in Oxford MI
Have fun! I hope you write a post about your experience!
Well done all those givers across the world, an amazing event, I wish you all well.
It was a great experience Tracy!
I’ve been giving The Book Thief in Bournemouth in the UK. It’s been horrible weather recently and I wanted to hand some out down the beach but no one’s there. Handed most of them out at work today and was lovely to see people cluthing copies of it as they left. There’s a pic of my books on this post: http://curiositykilledthebookworm.blogspot.co.uk/2012/04/incoming_22.html but I’ll probably do a wrap up later in the week when they’ve all gone.
Very cool! Thanks for linking!
Had so much fun handing out I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings in Dahlonega, Georgia! Can’t wait for next year’s event but in meantime, plan on hand-gifting to strangers from my own library each week. It was that much fun…and also a bit sad that so many ADULTS have not read in years!
Stacy what a great idea! You should keep an ongoing post on what book you gave away and to “who” 😀
I had a lot of fun handing out free copies of The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks last night at the Roosevelt Field Mall in Garden City, New York. Some people looked at me very skeptically, but most people were very appreciative. I am reading Henrietta Lacks now and enjoying it. I chose it because my favorite category of books is non-fiction, especially medical history, and popularized science. I especially tried to hand it out to people who did not look “bookish.” (Would that be considered profiling?
Any way, I don’t normally do things like this, and I found it to be very rewarding.
That is a great book Peter! And lol, yeah maybe that is profiling.. but for a good reason! 😀
I gave out The Book Thief in Beaumont, Texas. My mom and sis came along, and we had so much fun!
Book Thief is so wonderful! Great choice!
I gave out The Book Thief in Wintersville, Ohio. My daughter and husband came too. I loved it.
I love that you brought your family too… how fun!
I gave out The Things They Carried on a city bus. 🙂
What a great way to give them out! 😀
I had a great time handing out Maya Angelou’s memoir, I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings at the YMCA for World Book Night America. I felt connected to book-givers everywhere! April 23 happens to be my birthday, as well as William Shakespeare’s, so I brought along dozens of cookies and helium balloons. I loved telling everyone that Maya Angelou overcame a difficult childhood and went on to win the Pulitzer prize. I’m the author of the memoir “Moonlight on Linoleum,” so I’m a tad partial to memoirs.
Very cool! Sounds like you had a great time!
