My World Book Night 2014 recap..

where'd you go bernadette headed to new happy homes

So, yesterday was this big thing called WORLD BOOK NIGHT! It was my first time to be a giver and I was nervous. I wasn’t sure what to expect. I worried that no one would want the book (crazy, right?)

Let me set the scene for you:

I live in a small town. A very small town. A town that has a few conveniences, but all thoseΒ  places I saw other people talking about giving books away (the subway, homeless shelter, the beach, the dog park, the cute little square in their town) those were not options. I thought very hard about where I would give away my books as I applied. I decided on a few locations- the city park, the downtown area, and had the nursing home as a back-up. The downtown area is the city’s heart- it’s where people are found- visiting City Hall, the courthouse and more. There is a lunch shop in this area. So, I hit that area and found myself having a good time. I was giving away books, chatting with new people, and getting compliments on my Mississippi tote bag (it is super-cute!)

Everyone was really receptive to the idea of a free book and when I explained further about what World Book Night was and they loved it even more. “This is so cool” was the refrain I heard time and time again. The day was going good- the books were going to new homes- happy homes I imagined and I was smiling (although I was a bit sad to see Bernadette leave!) The only dark spot in the day was when I was down to a couple of books- I saw a lady and gave her my sweetest smile, explained what WBN was and then she refused a book. Happily, the next 2 people I saw were extra enthusiastic so World Book Night ended on a good note!

If you’ve never participated in World Book Night, I highly encourage you to give it a try!

 

Happy Reading and Bookishly Yours,
