Announcing the International Book Giving Day Blog Hop!

Saturday, January 26, 2013

We invite those of you with blogs to share stories of how you celebrate International Book Giving Day via our International Book Giving Day blog hop!

International Book Giving Day is a volunteer initiative aimed at increasing children’s access to and enthusiasm for books. We are inviting people to celebrate International Book Giving Day on February 14 by 1. giving a book to a friend or family member, 2. leaving a book in a waiting room for children to read, or 3. donating a gently used book to a local library, hospital, shelter, or organization that distributes used books to children in need.

One of the things that makes International Book Giving Day special is connecting with others from around the world who are giving books to kids. This blog hop offers one way for people from around the world to connect and share stories of how they celebrated International Book Giving Day.

To participate:

1. Write a post describing how you celebrated International Book Giving Day. A short and sweet post (e.g. a photo of you or your child leaving a book in a waiting room) is welcome!

2. On February 21 or shortly after, add a link to your post at any of our host blogs. Asia in the Heart, World on the Mind is one of the host blogs, so you can add your link right here!

The entire collection of links to stories about how people celebrated International Book Giving Day will be available at each of the host blogs. The blog hop will remain live until March 21.

For those of you without blogs:

We invite you to share photos via Instagram or Twitter by adding the tag #giveabook. You are also invited to email photos to amy dot broadmoore at gmail dot com, and we will share them at the International Book Giving Day website.

You can see how others around the world are celebrating International Book Giving Day by 1. following Instagram photos and tweets tagged #giveabook, 2. looking at the photos and stories that we share at the International Book Giving Day website, and 3. reading stories shared by bloggers as part of the International Book Giving Day blog hop.
