UK BookCrossers: Join 'World Book Night'

January 23, 2011
Hello, UK BookCrossers! Is there a book that you love so much that you just want to give it to dozens of people? On March 5, 2011, you could be one of 20,000 (yes, 20,000!) booklovers who get the opportunity to do just that. Join a new UK-based charity, World Book Night, and BookCrossing, to win and help give away 4 dozen books.

With the full support of BookCrossing, Publishers Association, the Booksellers Association, the Independent Publishers Guild, the Reading Agency with libraries, World Book Day and the BBC, one million books (labeled and preregistered with a BookCrossing Identification number) will be given away by an army of passionate readers to members of the public. This grand endeavor will result in carpeting the UK and Ireland with a million great books while spreading the love of reading.

Go to the World Book Night website, and register your details. Choose from the twenty-five books on offer and, if you're a lucky winner, you'll be sent a box of 48 copies to be handed out on the big night - and no hidden catches. (Hurry, though! Entry deadline is 0900 UK time on Tuesday, January 24, 2011.)
