How would you give???

Many of you may know that about two week ago I found out that I was chosen as a World Book Night giver! I have since found out what book I get to give on April 23, 2012. I was so excited because I actually got my first choice!

The Lightning Thief (Percy Jackson and the Olympians, #1)

Percy Jackson is about to be kicked out of boarding school... again. And that's the least of his troubles. Lately, mythological monsters and the gods of Mount Olympus seem to be walking straight out of the pages of Percy's Greek mythology textbook and into his life. And worse, he's angered a few of them. Zeus' master lightning bolt has been stolen, and Percy is the prime suspect.

Now Percy and his friends have just ten days to find and return Zeus' stolen property and bring peace to a warring Mount Olympus. But to succeed on his quest, Percy will have to do more than catch the true thief: he must come to terms with the father who abandoned him; solve the riddle of the Oracle, which warns him of betrayal by a friend; and unravel a treachery more powerful than the gods themselves.

I LOVE the Percy Jackson series!!! I actually don’t even have a copy at the moment because I have given mine out numerous times. What I really enjoy about this book is that anyone can enjoy it. The Lightning Thief is action packed with awesome characters that have to learn to rely on one another to get through incredible challenges.

My question to you…
If you had twenty copies of The Lightning Thief to give away how would you give?

I have a few ideas, but I would absolutely love any input you may have. All ideas are welcome! Thanks everyone in advance for helping me think of some fun ways to get people into readingSmile

Happy reading,


  1. I would contact some of the public middle schools in the area and ask if the teachers wanted to read this book with their class. I think the students would enjoy it and they'd also love to get their hands on new books, instead of the ones that are falling apart and 20 years old.

    1. Great idea! I do plan on contacting one of the schools in my area:)

  2. Go somewhere crowded, the just hand them to random people! ;)

  3. I normally donate my books that I don't need any longer as well as my extra copies to a non-profit organization in my local library. They run a used book store and the profits from that go back to maintenance projects around the library and other community projects focused on literacy. The just built a teen wing for the library, it's awesome and the teenagers seem to really love having a space for themselves to just read and escape.


Thanks so much for the comment love!
