On (or just before) 23rd April 2012, 480,000 copies of 25 different books will be sent out to 20,000 volunteers. Each volunteer will receive 24 copies of their chosen book and in the days and weeks that follow that will distribute this copies (for free) to anyone who wants one. This is World Book Night, “the most ambitious and far-reaching celebration of adult books and reading ever attempted in the UK and Ireland”.
To become one of these volunteers (or ‘givers’ as the WBN like to call them) register here.
I am still to register, but I’ve whittled the 25 titles down to four. I still need to cut one, and choose one as my first choice. At the moment I’m thinking cut Good Omens and have Someone Like You as my first choice. This may change.
