World Book Nite will be happening on April 23. It will be happening in the US, UK and Germany. But not in Canada. I tried to sign up to be a book giver, because what's more fun than descending on people in the street and encouraging them to read? But I was not permitted to participate because I'm a Canadian citizen.
So I'm having my own book give-away. Let me say that again.
On April 23, I will be giving away several books.
- it's World Book Nite
- it's World Book and Copyright Day
- it's Canada Book Day (but don't expect to see it celebrated)
- it's St. George's Day
- it's William Shakespeare's birth and death day
- it's International Pixel-Stained Technopeasant Day (but it doesn't look like that's celebrated any more either)
- and it's my birthday
And if all that's not a good excuse to give away some books, I don't know what is.
Tell all your friends.
I'll post about the books I'm giving away soon.
I just might post a story on April 23, too.
And I think I will make this an annual event.
