World Book Night will take place on April 23, 2012 across the U.S., UK and Ireland. During this event , 50,000 people, named as “book givers,” will each be giving away 20 books from a select list with a goal to have 1,000,000 people across the United States celebrating reading. Most of the publishing, bookstore, library, author, printing, and paper communities are behind this effort with donated services and time.

I think this is a great way to spread your love of reading! I'm heading over to the site to learn more about being a volunteer and I hope you'll join me.
