The books are ready to be in someone else’s hands! World Book Night is here! The date was chosen because it is the date of William Shakespeare’s birth, and what better way to celebrate by putting good books into the hands of light or non-readers. I chose to give “The Book Thief,” because it is a novel written for young adult readers which tells a meaningful and important story.
In a few minutes I am going to venture out and approach strangers and ask them about their reading habits. It’s such a great thing, putting great books into the hands of people who may not be drawn to books, but it is also feeling daunting right now. I’m an extrovert but approaching strangers is a little out of my comfort zone.
Maybe it’ll be a life changing experience for me, the giver, as well as for the receiver.
I’ll keep you posted!
