World Book Night Reveals Titles for 2013

World Book Night announced the titles of the books available to give away this year. Each giver receives a box of twenty books to distribute on World Book Night which is April 23, 2013. The guidelines and application is here, but don’t worry; you have from now through January, 2013, to apply.
The titles are so exciting I can hardly decide which one I’d like to give away! Possibly The Girl With The Pearl Earring. Or, City of Thieves. Sandra Cisneros’ The House on Mango Street. Maybe even Salvage The Bones by Jesmyn Ward… 
I hope that you’ll participate with me, and other givers, as there’s nothing quite so wonderful as sharing the love of literature. Especially with people who don’t have easy access to a book of their own.

  1. I saw on twitter that they had announced the titles – exciting! I didn't participate last year, but I'm thinking of going for it this time round. I was thinking of Cisneros' book, too – I love it!


  2. The House on Mango Street is one of my all-time favourites ever! I wish there was a World Book Night here in Canada. Have you read City of Thieves? How did you like it? I've had it on my shelves for a few years and still haven't had the urge to pick it up. I haven't seen it on blogs.


  3. I'm afraid many readers of the type of book you (and I) prefer to read will overlook one book in the list: LOOK AGAIN by Lisa Scottoline. She's an author I never bothered with and never wanted to. But I won LOOK AGAIN so read it. It's an excellent book. If you haven't read it, give it a try.


  4. The registration in UK opened two days ago. I gave away The Time Traveller's Wife last year and it was great. I'll be applying this year again. Look forward to hear of your choice!


  5. I can definitely see myself giving away The House on Mango Street to my daughter's school. Too bad Hate that Dog isn't on the list. I haven't read many of the books picked this year so I plan on reading a few of them before the application deadline and see if I should join you in the fun.
