World Book Night!!

This is my first year participating in World Book Night and I couldn't be more excited. World Book Night promotes reading to those populations who are nonreaders and/or do not have access to reading materials. 29,000 volunteers around the world will be giving out a total of 500,000 books (FOR FREE!) to people and encouraging them to become lifelong readers (and learners!). Each giver has a box of 20 books to pass out. My book is Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children which you'll remember I reviewed last year.  I am so excited and nervous (this is New York so you never know what might go down) to be participating in a cause which I firmly believe can be life changing for all of those involved. If you want more information on this momentous event (in celebration of Will Shakespeare's 450th birthday!) please go here.



  1. This sounds awesome! This is the first I'm hearing about. I'll have to participate next year!

    1. I first heard about it from Neil Gaiman who was one of the authors who participated last year. There will be open applications for World Book Night 2015 which you'll need to keep your eyes peeled for and then the waiting game begins to see if you've been chosen!

      I'll try to post an update later tonight on my experience. :-)
