Reminder to Rock the Drop Tomorrow!
Tomorrow is Teen Lit Day (Thursday, April 17th), so in celebration of this I plan to participate in Rock the Drop! Not familiar with Operation Teen Book Drop? Get the details here at readergirlz: http://readergirlz.blogspot.com/2014/03/rgz-newsflash-get-ready-to-rock-drop.html
Last year I participated in this awesome event by leaving a handful of YA books around my community for teens to pick up and read. Within minutes of me leaving the books behind on benches and other public areas where teens frequent, they were picked up! It's a great way to introduce a book to someone who has never heard of it, or maybe doesn't have the means to get to a library or bookstore often. I hope you'll join me + so many other book advocates and #rockthedrop!
This is also another great opportunity to do some spring cleaning, bloggers. Gather up a few YA books, slap this nifty bookplate [found here from the readergirlz] on to each book, and get ready to Rock the Drop! Be sure to take photos & use hashtag #rockthedrop when sharing :)
