Happy International Book Giving Day!

It's International Book Giving Day! The goal: to get as many new, used and borrowed books into the hands of as many children as possible. You can celebrate this EVERY day, of course: find out how.

I created a special bookplate in honor of the occasion. You can download it from the International Book Giving Day website.


Thanks to Nancy Tandon for giving International Book Giving Day and my bookplate some blog love today!
