World Book Night...Yes, Please!

So, last year I spent a good two months being jealous of all the UK blogs I follow and read as they participated in World Book Night...this year the US is participating and I have sent in my application!!! Yippers!!!

What is World Book Night?
From the website:

World Book Night is a charity dedicated to the promotion of literacy and the celebration, sharing and enjoyment of reading amongst teenagers and adults. The first World Book Night was held in the UK in 2011. In 2012 World Book Night will be celebrated in the USA as well as the UK and Ireland on April 23 and will see tens of thousands of givers share the joy and love of reading with millions of non or light readers.
To find out more about WBN please visit our 'About World Book Night' page

If you are chosen, you are given 20 copies of the book you selected to pass out to the audience you selected. Books in the hands of those who wouldn't, for myriad reasons, have one otherwise. It sounds pretty darned amazing!!! 

What are the books?
There are 30 books to choose from and they can be found here.
The three books I chose (you'll be asked to choose 3 when you sign up) are in order:

1] The Hunger Games
2] The Lovely Bones
3] Kindred

If you want to sign up, and you know you want to, click here.
