World Book Night 2012

Read and be happy

Hey, just learned about this from Twitter (so it CAN be useful). Not enough time to prep for tonight’s give-away (plus I’m teaching), but I’ll be ready for next year.

Learn about the event here, and see the list of this year’s books here. I was so happy to see how many of the books on the list I’ve read, and how many I still need to read. And to think that last night I was recommending one of the books (Marilynne Robinson’s Homecoming) to a friend!

So, get out and encourage others to read. Here’s a quote from Kafka to get you started: “A book should be the axe for the frozen sea within you.”
