WORLD BOOK NIGHT! ETC.
Just wanted to let you know about a couple of really cool events and things we've got going on at the store in the coming weeks -- foremostly, the second annual WORLD BOOK NIGHT which we are really excited to be participating in at the store. Curious?: "World Book Night is an annual celebration designed to spread a love of reading and books. To be held in the U.S. as well as the U.K. and Ireland on April 23, 2012. It will see 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. Successfully launched in the U.K. in 2011, World Book Night will also be celebrated in the U.S. in 2012, with news of more countries to come in future years." In other words, sign up to give away books (and encourage reading in your community), or come and get some books...FOR FREE! The list of the books they are giving away can be seen here, and includes a ton of great titles, including The Absolutely True Diary of a Part Time Indian, Hunger Games, Ender's Game, The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao, The Namesake, Peace Like a River, The Things They Carried...and on from there!
