World Book Night

A Night of giving the joy of reading!

World Book Night is a new event designed to share the joy of reading with as many new underserved readers as possible.  What a way to celebrate Shakespeare’s birthday!

50,000 volunteer book givers have been chosen in communities around the country (and the U.K. and Ireland) and will give free books to those who may not have access to books or are infrequent readers.

Registration for this year’s event is closed, but info on next year’s event is available on the website.

I am so thrilled with the 30 books chosen for this year’s give-away. I’ve read over half of them. Thrilled to see The Hunger Games there. For the complete list click here.

Books about Teens Gone Bad…and then some…

Found this interesting: Cat Clarke’s top 10 books with teens behaving badly….

Good list. Have to say I just read  Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver, and this book instantly came to mind when I saw this article. It’s number six on her list.  Great book…Clarke describes as “Mean Girls meets Ground Hog Day”…that’s a perfect description…

What would you do if you had to live the last day of your life over and over again? What would you do different?
