Voorhees, NJ (PRWEB) April 25, 2014
World Book Night, http://www.WorldBookNight.org, was an ambitious campaign that gave away thousands of books, specially printed paperbacks to light or non readers. Volunteer book lovers like TURNING STONEchoice, helped promote reading by going into our community of Camden, NJ, and handing out copies of a book. With the organizational support of our local bookstores and libraries, we shared them to the Puerto Rican Unity for Progress Organization. Our group is very proud to be World Book Night givers.
Natasha Rodriguez from the Puerto Rican Unity for Progress shares, "I love to read because it fills your brain with new things and many different words that could describe little words. Reading opens your mind to a world of imagination. A good author would put you in place of the character and make you fell what they feel in simple words and images."
World Book Night took place on April 23, 2014 –Shakespeare’s birthday– and is in its third year in the U.S. WBN reach includes all 50 states, Puerto Rico, USVI, and overseas military bases. The WBN picks are by a wide array of award-winning and bestselling adult and YA authors, as well as classics, books in Spanish, and books in Large Print. The assortment of World Book Night titles is based on diversity in subject matter, age level, gender, ethnicity and geography. The books were chosen in a vote by librarians, booksellers, and last year’s givers.
