world book night 2013


Last year I participated in World Book Night with my selected giveaway of The Namesake by Jhumpa Lahiri.  I was first introduced to Lahiri’s work in an undergraduate English class.  I adored her short stories and was thrilled when the professor said she was working on a full-length novel.  Well before I started my blog, I was telling people to read her books.  So giving The Namesake to others on World Book Night 2012 was an excellent experience.  Unfortunately my work schedule this time around means I likely won’t be able to participate in World Book Night 2013, but I recommend it for anyone who wants to share a love of reading.  To apply you must be at least 16 years old and live in the United States, the United Kingdom, or Germany.  All the details and application can be found on the World Book Night website.  (The links are for the US site, but the other countries can be accessed through the US site.)
