World Book Night 2012 and The Time Traveler’s Wife

I am picked to give out Audrey Niffenegger’s ‘The Time Traveler’s Wife’, for World Book Night on the 23rd of April. The Time Traveler’s Wife is one of my favourite book, and definitely one that I can say for certain I love it, out of the list of World book night list of books for selection. This is my first time participating in the World Book Night giveaway and I am happy to be selected.

World Book Night 2012

Nearer to the time I will give away 2 copies to my international readers and I hope you will join me in this celebration of reading this Spring.

  1. I am so happy that I know someone else who is going to give away books for World Book Night. It’ll be fun that day to know that so many others are doing the same thing as us

  2. I heard from World Book Night that I was ‘accepted’ to give away a book, but I’m not sure which one yet. I applied for Because of Winn-Dixie, and I’m so surrounded by lovely children, but I think you’re choice of The Time Traveler’s Wife is a great one to give away, too! There were so many good books on their list!! I’d have liked to given away A Prayer for Owen Meaney, as well. Won’t this be fun? It’s my first time, too. xo

    • Bellezza,
      It’s interesting that they didn’t tell you which book you are giving away. Helen is having the same issue so I suppose it’s the USA side of things which they would disclose the titles a little later perhaps. It’s amazing to know it’s the first for so many people! xoxo

  3. Congratulations on being selected for WBN. I think it’s tradition that bloggers post a report on how their evening/day went on their blog so I’m looking forward to yours already! 😉

    Good choice of book, too. This is a book that probably lots of people will like.

    • Stu,
      Did they say what title you are about to distribute? Congratulations Stu. It’s always a great feeling to be able to give out books. I do it all the time on my own budget, but it’s a joy to do it in a big way! All the best.

Ratings Defined

0 = Abandon the book after first chapter

1 = Waste of paper, we will see what the environmentalist say about this!

2 = Skip it, read the book if you have got nothing better to do

2.5 = An average book, easily forgettable.

3 = A good read.

3.5 = A good entertaining read, a page-turner

4 = So glad that I read the book, a book with substance and invaluable for future reference

4.5 = So glad that I read the book, would pester everyone to read it, invaluable, I would want to own it and wouldn't mind a second read (something that I seldom do)

5 = The book is so good that I feel like I am on scale 4 and 4.5, and more, it blew me away and lingers on my head for weeks!

Reading, after a certain age, diverts the mind too much from its creative pursuits. Any man who reads too much and uses his own brain too little falls into lazy habits of thinking. - Albert Einstein (1879 - 1955)
