World Book NightLove books? Want 20 free copies of a book to give away to non-readers and light readers in your life? Sign up to be a giver for World Book Night!

They need book-loving volunteers to fan out across America on April 23, 2012. Just pick up 20 free copies of a book from a location in your community (Vroman’s is a pick-up location), give them out to the people of your choice, and you just might change someone’s life. You’ll need to sign up by February 1st, though, so head on over to their website!

The goal is to give books to new readers, to encourage reading, and to share your passion for a great book. You even get your choice of book – they’ve got a lot of gems on the list, so you can pick one that is really meaningful to you. There is huge support from the publishing industry, local bookstores and libraries, authors, printers, and more, who are all donating services, space, and time. The first World Book Night was held in the UK last year, and it was such a big success that it’s spreading around the world, so you’ll be in great company. Please volunteer to be a book giver in the U.S.! Let’s try to get as many people reading as possible.
