New Year Revolution: Give Something Away

Just found this video thanks to John Green sharing it on Twitter. It brought Operation Teen Book Drop to mind, so I thought I'd share it.

Rosianna was inspired by the New Year Revolution to give something away. She selected four novels by John Green, wrapped them up with a pretty bow and topped them off with a personal note encouraging someone to pick up the books and read them.

Kudos to you, Rosianna! I hope the person who finds the books enjoys them - and I hope this post prompts you to come say hi at the readergirlz blog!

Gentle readers, what are your New Year's Resolutions? Are you going to make this a New Year Revolution a la the Channel 4 project? Like the Superchick song says, "I'm a one girl revolution." :)

This also reminds me of the Pass The Book Program that the Indianapolis Marion County Public Library ran a couple of years ago. They distributed copies of John Green's books to people, asked them to log the book on their website and then pass it on to someone else. The books traveled over 10,000 miles and are probably still circulating! more information:
