The day honors authors, illustrators, and most of all books and reading. And it's BIG. I'm celebrating my second annual World Book Day giveaway on my website, and you're invited to take part. I'm giving away 12 print books (romance, of course!). You'll find more information at the bottom of this blog.
World Book Day is a UNESCO designated holiday observed in more than 100 countries. This year marks the 19th annual celebration of all things books and reading. Some nations hold the holiday in March, while the USA gives its nod on April 23rd.
Why shine so much light on books?
Because no one should be shut out of their basic right to an education...
Because reading changes lives...
Because illiteracy exacts a heavy price on the lives it touches...
To promote all things reading, I'm hosting my second annual World Book Day giveaway on my blog.
Go to my website ginaconkle.com to connect with the Rafflecopter giveaway.
Thanks for stopping by today and be sure to wish someone "Happy World Book Day" on April 23rd.
Cheers to you Reader!
