World Book Night




Do Y'all know what World Book Night is? If you don't go to the website their website at worldbooknight.org.  This event was started in England last year. They had such a awesome response. Another one will be done on April 23rd, all across the United States.

World Book Night is volunteer organization to spread the word about reading. To people that usually don't have the time to read.  Each giver is given a list of books, he/ she has a choice of one book out of twenty titles.  Out of the thousands of applications submitted, 
               
                I WAS CHOSEN!!! How Awesome.

This is something I like to do, when I finish a book. If it is a good book I like to pass it on, or spread the word about good books. That is how I feel about Namesake. This was exactly what I did after reading, very fitting I feel.

 This is one of the goals I have for both of my blogs, Susans Literary Cafe, and. Bagels, Books and Schmooze.  The book that I am giving, is drum roll please!!! Are you ready.... Now, I have to pick my books up... not to far at..... Bookends.

                             NAMESAKE by Jhumpa Lahiri

This is fitting, Namesake was chosen for one of our book clubs back... back... when we first started.
It is fitting that I will be giving this novel to spread the word.  The other reason is many citizens in the area that I live in are not native to the community. Most of us are transplants from the north.  What southerners call us, Yankees.  Namesake, is about immigration, and fitting in to a foreign land.
