The Best of World Book Night 2013

If you read my last post, you are familiar with my failure to again apply to be a book giver during this years World Book Night 2013. And the subsequent pain of discovering one of my life changing titles on the list to give away.

It turns out there were so many amazing people who were not only WAY more attentive to details than I, but also genuinely excited about sharing books with members of their communities. Here are a few moments I found on Twitter that make me thankful and motivated. (I’ve signed up for the newsletter, I’m on it for 2014, guys!)
