I’m so excited! I love the idea of this project — passing out books to encourage reading.
The book I selected to give is The Kite Runner, one of my all-time favorite novels. In fact I think I’m going to re-read it before April 23 and reacquaint myself with why I love this book so much.
It’s not too late to get involved in World Book Night if you are interested. Applications for givers are being accepted until February 6, so don’t delay! Go to World Book Night’s website and join fellow book lovers in spreading the love of books and reading!
