world book night

I've been selected to give away 20 books as part of this year's World Book Night and I'm absolutely chuffed. The chance to encourage those who might not be able to afford a book to read means the world to me. To spread literacy, to show that it's okay to read - it's a dream.

The book I'll be giving away is Markus Zusak's The Book Thief. The majority of the people visiting this blog have probably read it, and you can understand why it's an important book to share.

Thank you, thank you, thank you to World Book Night and Random House for giving me the opportunity to participate in giving back. It's going to be a memorable day to say the least.

I also applied but haven't heard back. Tried last year too but didn't get anywhere.
Congrats on being selected.
I am obviously in the minority though as I have never read the Book Thief. I've looked at it a few times in the library but it's never there when I have time to read it. :D

I would so be doing this but The Book Thief was gone by the time I learned about it, and then I lost my enthusiasm! :) Have a blast giving them away!
