04/23/14 is World Book Night, an annual celebration designed to spread a love of reading and books in the US and UK. Organizers are looking for 25,000 volunteers to each hand out 20 copies of select book titles. You must register before 01/05/14 in order to participate.
Here’s how it works:
FREE books!? Yes, but here’s the catch:
- Givers must be over 16 years old.
- You’ll get 20 copies of 1 book, no mixing and matching.
- These books are for non-readers or light readers. As much as you’d like to give them to friends or donors, please apply only if you’re willing to find 20 people that you think probably wouldn’t do much reading otherwise and could use an extra push.
- You do have to apply and actually fill out the application – one-word answers probably won’t get you selected.
- You have to hand out the books on April 23rd, or the following week.
- Again, the deadline to register as a giver is January 5th.
