Register for World Book Night 2012 and be a giver!
World Book Night launched in the UK in 2011 and saw passionate readers across that beautiful country, give 1 million books to light or non readers to spread the joy and love of reading. Reading changes lives and at the heart of World Book Night lies the simplest of ideas and acts – that of putting a book into another person’s hand and saying ‘this one’s amazing, you have to read it’.
Now, it’s our time to join the cause.
World Book Night 2012 will be held on April 23 – in the US and the UK – and we’re looking for 50,000 volunteer book givers to hand out 20 copies each – for a total of 1 million free special World Book Night paperbacks!
There is a fantastic list of books up for grabs, including Orson Scott Card’s Ender’s Game, Maya Angelou’s I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings, Suzanne Collins’s Hunger Games, Jodi Picoult’s My Sister’s Keeper, and Markus Zusak’s The Book Thief. Fill out the application to become a volunteer giver!
