World Book Night is a campaign to find light or non-readers in the community and hand them each a book. Person-to-person. To get more people reading.
World Book Night is a celebration of reading and books which sees tens of thousands of passionate volunteers give away books in their communities to share their love of reading. Successfully launched in the U.K. in 2011, World Book Night will also be celebrated in the U.S. and Germany in 2012, with more countries to come in future years.
The deadline to sign up is February 6th! And yes, you can give your books away during the day of April 23rd as well as in the evening.
