Sign up for World Book Night

World Book Night 2012

Love a book so much you want the world to read it? World Book Night needs book-loving volunteers to fan out across America on April 23, 2012, to help share their passion for reading. Sign up here to join the movement by Feb. 1.

So what happens on World Book Night? Volunteers simply take 20 copies of a book to a location in their community and give them to the people they see there. For free. The goal is to give books to new readers, to encourage reading, to share the passion for a great book. Full details can be found here.

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.” That’s something we at Blair can stand up for.
