World Book Night

Did you know that tonight is World Book Night? I didn’t until about 45 minutes ago when I nice lady offered me an Agatha Christie murder mystery I did not have (After the Funeral) while I was sitting in a local restaurant. She explained this is all part of World Book Night’s efforts to encourage reading. They hope to mobilize 25,000 volunteers in 6,200 towns to give away 500,000 books.

I learned their effort is funded by UPS as well as a number of publishers and booksellers. Here is the website for World Book Night US. Never heard of this effort before and wanted to give them a big shout out.

 

One thought on “World Book Night

  1. At our Tuesday lunch, one of the students part of the Christian Medical Society (CMS)/CMDA at the Penn State College of Medicine shared about her desire to participate. We discussed good places in the area to distribute books. What a fun conversation . . . no doubt with application to our labors 🙂
