Well the time is almost here, it is after midnight so technically it is World Book Night, 2014!
I have been a giver for three years in a row. It is such a worthwhile thing to do, I give out at hospital, in the town center (which has been met with sweetness, distrust or just avoidance), I met a giver last year too, I was delighted.
This year I am giving out Tales of the City by Armistead Maupin. I read this book years ago and went on to buy the others in the series, it has been a good few years and don't remember much about it but I did enjoy it and as a very stressful end of term is coming up I will reacquaint soon!
A 3000 word report is due on Thursday and a big exam so tomorrow is a busy busy day. I will of course be taking time out to give out my fabulous World Book Night Books and I will share any stories.
Here was Trixie "my wee helper" giving her usual lot of helpfulness, she is pretty cute though eh? She spent almost an hour in that box!

This is a great thing to do. I am sorry that I have not yet participated. I must make a point of doing so next year.ReplyDelete
Trixie is very cute.
Happy World Book Night to you and Trixie! Enjoy!ReplyDelete
Trixie is adorable! I haven't participated yet but I should! Well done you.ReplyDelete
I hope you had fun handing out the books during World Book Night! My co-worker participates and this year she handed out Perks of Being a Wallflower.ReplyDelete
I was a giver of The Boy With The Topknot. As last year we had planned an event at the college where my husband works but sadly the fun had to go ahead without me as I was poorly. Still, it went well and over 70 students went home with a book.ReplyDelete
Its a shame that the company who gave us Maukie collapsed, I've been looking around for an alternative and quite like the idea of a sheep.
