Usually, I hate 14th February. I must be missing the French romantic gene because I can’t think of anything worse than Valentine’s Day. But thanks to International Book Giving Day, today is all about spreading a whole different kind of love: the love of books and reading, and sharing it with people that might not be able to access it as easily as I – and most of us – can.
There are many ways to celebrate this wonderful day, and you can find all about it here, here and here.
I have chosen to donate some books to The Book Bus, because I find them very inspirational, and I just love the idea of this little library on wheels!
Go and read all about this wonderful charity here.
This is what we have put in post for them today:
Representatives from The Book Bus will be talking at the FCBG conference in April if you are interested in hearing more about their work.
Hooray Melanie! I love the Book Bus too, and can’t wait to meet some of the people behind it at conference. Thank you for taking part in International Book Day – it’s great to have your support!
Thank you, I am just sorry it took me so long to post this! This morning was manic and yesterday was D’s birthday so I have only just managed to write it!
There’s an award for you on my blog – check it out!
A perfect way to celebrate! I am glad you took the opportunity to give a shout out to The Book Bus.
Thanks again for participating and helping spread the word about International Book Giving Day! I added a photo and note about how you celebrated to our Photos & Stories 2012 page and flickr group: http://bookgivingday.blogspot.com/p/photos-stories.html
