World Book Night


I had so much fun being a giver during the 2012 World Book Night.  I gave away The Things They Carried by Tim O'Brien.  They've just announced the books that will be available for giving this year.  There are so many great books on this list, I'm going to have a hard time decided which book to "bid" on.

Smarty Pants lol.
