World Book Night - April 23, 2012

World Book Night is coming up next month.  The 30 books that were chosen by the WBN organization were carefully selected.  As far as I'm concerned, if I had to choose 30 books to read for the rest of my life, I would be happy with this list.

When I filled out my application to be an official Book Giver, I had to give my 1st, 2nd and 3rd choices.  No one who reads my blog or knows me in real life, would be surprised to find out that I chose THE BOOK THIEF by Markus Zusack as my 1st choice.  I always have a paperback copy of this book ready to give to someone.  I never ask for it back.  It's just one of those books that appeal to so many different people, I can't help but share it.  I think I have given at least 8 copies out so far on my own!

But, the list has me thinking....

If you had to hand out 20 copies of any book...WHICH BOOK WOULD YOU CHOOSE?

I'll be passing out The Poisonwood Bible.

I am passing out The Namesake, but if I had my choice I would be passing out The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks. Everyone needs to read that book!

I absolutely loved The Book Thief too! My first pick was Hunger Games as I thought if I were trying to read new readers, this is a wonderful book to get people into reading who dont normally do so. That is the book I will be handing out!

I would pass out The Lovely Bones. I have a copy that I lend to any one who is going on a trip. They write their name and destination in it. I love seeing how far the book as gone.
I also love The Book Thief. Amazing.

I would probably choose A Prayer for Owen Meaney by John Irving. It's a favorite.

I just found your blog and am going to list you in my blogroll. We have similar tastes in books and I will be using your reviews to guide my choices!
