World Book Night 2013
WORLD BOOK NIGHT 2013 is a celebration of literacy by publishers, bookstores, libraries and individuals who love books and reading. On WORLD BOOK NIGHT 2013, 25,000 "book givers" will each give away 20 copies of a specially-printed, not for resale WBN edition of a book they have read or loved to complete strangers – people who may never have owned a book of their own. To promote this literacy event, libraries and bookstores — as organizational participants in the event — form a nationwide advocacy and distribution network.
You must be 16 years of age or older.
World Book Night books are not for resale.
World Book Night books are not for friends, family, or book groups.
In the application you will be asked three questions, please think about your answers before applying:

- Why do you want to give books away?
You must apply before January 23, 2013 to be a World Book Night U.S. Giver
