World Book Night 2012

You probably know that books feature prominently in my life, so (like last year) I’ve signed up with World Book Night so that I can share that passion and help spread a love of reading. I’m hoping to be one of 20,000 people chosen to give away 24 copies of my chosen book: Touching the Void by Joe Simpson, on April 23 to people who don’t regularly read. Last year I was one of 20,000 chosen to give away 40 copies of a novel by my favourite Latin American author, Gabriel García Márquez. The deadline to apply to be a giver this year is January 31 and you can apply as well or find out more by following this link http://bit.ly/beaWBNgiver

    I am hoping to be chosen as well. This will be my spa’s charity for the month of APRIL. Give a book. Love it!

  2. World Book Night is such a great event.

  3. Touching the Void, awesome book – the film was something special too

  4. That is a great book

    I’ve never heard of an event like this – please tell me more – I am going to suggest something like this for the American Association of University Women’s annual book club sale in Ann Arbor. Thanks for passing this information on.
