Deutschland Joins World Book Night

Germany has become the third country to join the World Book Night celebrations. Started in the UK last year, World Book Night will take place this year on April 23rd and is centered on the give-away of millions of books to encourage reading (and book buying). In Germany, World Book Night, or Weltag des Buches, is sponsored by Stiftung Lesen, Boersenverein des Deutschland and twenty individual publishing firms.

There is still time to participate in WBN. You can sign-up on the website until February 1st. In order to be a volunteer “book giver” you must be at least 16 years old, be able to pick-up 20 copies of a book and agree to give away the books on WBN to “non or light readers”.
