World Book Night Prep...

Tomorrow, I get to be a book giver, and I couldn't be happier. World Book Night U.S. is a celebration of books and reading held on April 23, when 25,000 passionate volunteers across America give a total of half a million books within their communities to those who don’t regularly read.

Why does World Book Night exist? Reading for pleasure improves literacy, actively engaging emerging readers in their desire to read. Reading changes lives, improves employability, social interaction, enfranchisement, and can have a positive effect on mental health and happiness. Book readers are more likely to participate in positive activities such as volunteering, attending cultural events, and even physical exercise.
 Or more simply put, books are fun—and they can be life-changing.
We will wander the streets of South Lake Tahoe with hundreds of books. I can't think of a better way to spend a Wednesday.
