wbnlogoWould you like to be be part of World Book Night on April 23, when readers around the world share free copies of good books at local community spots? Apply to join us. Application Deadline: Sunday, January 5.

Some frequently asked questions:

What books will I be handing out? World Book Night  books are specially produced, not-for-resale paperbacks. Book givers will receive 20 copies of one book, a book they love from the list of 35 World Book Night titles.

Do I have to buy the books? sell the books? There is no charge for these special, not-for-resale editions. Givers will be responsible for any expenses incurred in picking up their box and distributing the books. These books cannot be resold in any fashion. Authors have foregone their royalties to make this possible.

Sounds great. How can I be part of this? Apply to be a book giver. Act quickly: application deadline is January 5.
