World Book Night Titles Announced

World Book Night, April 23rd, 2014, marks the third year that volunteer givers in U.S. will hand out half a million free paperbacks. The list of this year’s titles, announced last night, includes a wide range of books with broad appeal, from older classics to recent releases, fiction, nonfiction, children’s and YA titles, two in large type and one that is available in both English and Spanish.

One of the titles is Eleanor Brown’s The Weird Sisters, (Penguin/Einhorn), a librarian favorite for the sisters’ motto, “There is no problem a library card can’t solve.” (THAT would make a great sticker for all the books).

Applications are now open to become a volunteer giver.
