The Cottage Book Shop, Glen Arbor, MI
Giver Box of Books!
So, I chose my pick-up point to be The Cottage Book Shop in Glen Arbor where I had a book-signing event.
This way, I not only got to grab my books to distribute, but also got to meet other book-givers!
What is World Book Night, you ask?
Well...from their website:
"World Book Night U.S. is a celebration of books and reading held on April 23, when 25,000 passionate volunteers across America give a total of half a million books within their communities to those who don’t regularly read. In 2012, World Book Night was celebrated in the U.S., the UK, Ireland, and Germany and saw over 80,000 people gift more than 2.5 million books."

The book I get to distribute is Ray Bradbury's FAHRENHEIT 451, but the book-givers at this pick-up site were swapping a few of their book with others so we would all have a selection of books to give.
