Sleepygirl's Used Books in Joplin, MO so my cousin could pick up her box of books for World Book Night. This is the second year she has been a giver for World Book Night. Last year, her book was The Hunger Games, which was her first choice. This year, she is giving out The Lightning Thief, which was also her first choice.
On Tuesday, April 23rd, she will be delivering her books to local schools, the public library, and a couple other locations.
I plan on applying to be a giver next year. The application process starts around November. See below on how to apply.
How it works:
After the book titles are announced, members of the public apply to personally hand out 20 copies of a particular title in their community. World Book Night U.S. vets the applications, and the givers are chosen based on their ability to reach light and non-readers. The selected givers choose a local participating bookstore or library from which to pick up the 20 copies of their book, and World Book Night U.S. delivers the books to these host locations.
