I just wanted to make sure you all knew about this fantastic thing going on- World Book Night. Sign ups have been extended until February 6th, so make sure you check it out!

On April 23rd givers all over the US will be running around giving out BOOKS to non or light readers. Isn't that AWESOME?! All you have to do to be a giver is sign up, pick up a box of 20 special World Book Night editions of the book you selected and pass them around. Brilliant.

Twenty books... that must be expensive! Nope. It's FREE. You just sign up, pick up your books, and give them to people who really need them. So really, you have no reason not to do this. Go, my loves! Go spread those spectacular stories!!

The list of books you can choose from:
The Absolutely True Diary of a Part Time Indian - Sherman Alexie
Wintergirls - Laurie Halse Anderson
I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings - Maya Angelou
Friday Night Lights - H. G. Bissinger
