World Book Night

What is World Book Night?

World Book Night is an annual celebration designed to spread the love of reading and books. It is held in the U.S, U.K. and Ireland on April 23, 2012. Tens of thousands of people go out into their communities to spread the joy and love of reading by giving out free World Book Night paperbacks.

World Book Night, through social media and traditional publicity, will also promote the value of reading, of printed books, and of bookstores and libraries to everyone year-round.

I had the opportunity to give away "My Sister's Keeper" by Jodi Picoult. At first, I wasn't sure who or how to give these books away. The more I thought about giving these books away, the more I thought about putting them on people's windshields at our local mall and that is exactly what I did.

I even gave a few away to actual people who were wondering what I was doing.

It was so fun to be able to give away something.. It brought me a lot of joy. Something simple...

What brings you joy?
