World Book Night ~ Read on! #wbnamerica


World Book Night is about promoting reading. Tens of thousands of people go out into their communities and give out free World Book Night paperbacks. So what do you do if you not only don't have any WBN paperbacks but also can't get out? Follow on Facebook and Twitter (@wbnamerica)

Although print books, handed out in person, are the focus, reading is what matters most. Have a Project Gutenberg book on me. Have as many as you want. Share them with all your friends. Free rounds of books for everyone!

PS: April 23 is UNESCO’s World Book Day, chosen due to the anniversary of Cervantes’ death, as well as Shakespeare’s birth and death. In the queue: follow up post on Read "Write" for Adult Literacy's annual Authors for Literacy and local participation
