World Book Night! I'm a Book Giver!

I'm so excited to announce I've been chosen as a Book Giver for World Book Night, coming up on April 23. And I got a great book to give away- Tim O'Brien's masterpiece The Things They Carried. This book, made up of short stories and vignettes about the Vietnam War, is an American classic and one of the best books about any war. It's required reading!

I haven't yet been assigned to a bookstore or library for pickup but you can be sure I'll keep you up to date on all the happenings.

What about you? Are you participating? What book will you be giving away?

I am a book giver as well, and will be giving away The Namesake, which is one of my all time favorite reads. Yay! So happy you will be doing this as well!

How fun! That is a phenomenal book...ranked in my top reads the year I read it. I know Heather is doing this. I declined this year. I fear I might implode if I add one more thing to my schedule.

I'm participating and giving away "The Hunger Games" - although the O'Brien book was either my primary choice or one of my backups, I can't remember exactly.

Huzzah! I've been picked too and will be giving away The Book Thief. I had a hard time choosing and O'Brien's was one of the ones I mulled over. I'm so excited. This is a great event and I'm happy to see so many of us are participating.
