> The Things You Can Read: Countdown to World Book Night: April 23, 2013

The Things You Can Read welcomes you and thanks you for your readership. We, here at The Things You Can Read, ask your help, if you visit our site regularly, please follow us either via email or Google Friend Connect.  Launched on June 7, 2012, our site has already attracted a great deal of attention.  One of the goals of the site is to feature reviews of Children's Picture Books, Young Adult novels and Adult Literary Fiction/Nonfiction.  A second goal for the blog is to be a resource for teachers of English and writing--with examples of student created writing, writing tips, resource links, and the opportunity to pick the brain of a seasoned English teacher.  To spice things up...every now and then, we'll also include random quotes and thoughts on education and life in general, but our ultimate goal is to reach out into the blogosphere and be a "Book Whisperer" and "Writing Whisperer" to children and adults of all ages.   Thank you for your readership.  Here is to a lifetime filled with reading and writing.

Countdown to World Book Night: April 23, 2013

Shelf Awareness shared a recent update from World Book Night 2013 stating:

With less than a month until World Book Night U.S. on April 23, this is the first of the organization's weekly updates and reminders to the volunteer givers, to bookstores and libraries and to the publishing community:
James Patterson has been confirmed for an appearance on CBS This Morning on Friday, April 19. Patterson is also joining Ann Patchett at Parnassus Books, Nashville, Tenn., as one of 12 author events scheduled as part of the Monday, April 22, Kick Off Celebrations. Three WBN Poetry Nights have been added, as well a WBN Theater Evening in conjunction with the Looking Glass Theater production of Still Alice in Chicago.
Also confirmed: a recorded interview with WBN U.S. executive director Carl Lennertz will air on 100 local NPR stations the week of April 15, and a WBN story will run in the April issue of American Way magazine. More media updates next week.
Givers, booksellers and libraries are also getting regular e-mail updates, and being reminded to go to the Resources section at us.worldbooknight.org to download signs, bookmarks, press release templates and much more. Booksellers have been mailed WBN book stickers for regular edition displays, as well as posters to stores and libraries by request.
