International Book Giving Day

Getting this information out there early so that folks have as much time as possible to prepare to take part in International Book Giving Day on February 14, 2015.

International Book Giving Day is “a day dedicated to getting new, used and borrowed books in the hands of as many children as possible.”

Readers of this blog already know that I’m all for getting books out to people, and getting into the hands of children is a great opportunity to contribute to the life of a child. I find it difficult to imagine what my life might have been like if I had not had books in it from the moment I could read.

If you plan on taking part in International Book Giving Day this year, I’d love to hear of your actions in the comment below, either before or after the official day.

 

About The Word Of Jeff

I'm a freelance writer and blogger who has written for, among others, Tribune Media Services, Suite101 and Athena Guides. As an intrepid traveler I have chronicled some of my travels at The Verbal Vagabond, my travel blog. And, being an avid amateur photographer, I also have a photography blog spotlighting photos I have taken of areas around my hometown at Postcards From Maggie Valley. Speaking of Maggie Valley, that is where my wife, our Golden Retriever/Border Collie mix, Bella, our Orange Tabby, Tigger and I live in a log cabin on a mountain in Western North Carolina, just at the edge of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. I enjoy hiking, camping, art, travel, photography (as mentioned above), and an occasional glass of good wine while reading or writing in front of the fireplace.
