World Book Night

  • Posted on: 12 November 2013

If you happen to see people wandering around town giving away books for free on this night, do not be alarmed. Nothing's wrong, in fact, everything's fine. World Book Night is having its 3rd annual, well...Night. A certain select group of folks are handed batches of new books by publishers with the only stipulation being to give them away to folks who wouldn't ordinarily encounter such things. Think of this as a random act of kindness on a global scale. Nobody knows where it will lead, but if even a small number of book recipients start to read, doors may open that might have remained closed. Is that exciting or what?
