What's better than a free book?

On April 23, 2012, thousands of World Book Night volunteers will give out a million free paperback copies of 30 popular titles in an effort to spur public interest in reading. With a price tag of free and titles like The Hunger Games and The Lovely Bones, what's not to love about this event? I especially recommend Laurie Halse Anderson's Wintergirls; I read it almost in one sitting. Raw, beautiful account of a young girl's struggle with eating disorders after her best friend dies of one. You won't forget it.

Check out the book list at Publisher's Weekly.

Sign up to be a volunteer at World Book Night.

Here's hoping this hits our communities!
