World Book Night 2013

I am very excited that I am going to be a book distributer for the second annual U.S. World Book Night in April!

I am giving away John Green's Looking for Alaska. I'll confess that I haven't read this book so I'll do that in March. I may do what I did last year and distribute the books in English classes at the high school where I work. Last year I went into classes where the students don't enjoy reading and it was great to see them get excited about the books I had and then to have them come to me later saying how much they liked the books!

Each book distributer is given 20 books to distribute to people who don't normally read. Here is the complete list of books that are being distributed this year:
