Operation Teen Book Drop is coming! Are you ready to #rockthedrop?

We're so excited to be rocking Operation Teen Book Drop '13! You guys know The Drop is one of our favorite days of the year -- what better way to get on board with Support Teen Literature day? This year, in addition to rocking out and dropping our favorite YA titles in public spaces for lucky readers to discover, we're also directing supporters of teen fiction everywhere to consider a book donation to 826NYC to help grow their library. On April 18th (that's next Thursday!), readergirlz will be teaming with Figment, I Heart Daily, Soho Teen, and 826NYC to celebrate YA lit.

Want to #rockthedrop with us? Of course you do!

Here's how: 

Follow @readergirlz on twitter and tweet #rockthedrop

Print out the bookplate (designed by the super-talented Lindsay Frantz) and drop books in your area on Support Teen Literature Day:

Donate books to 826NYC: 

attn: Joan Kim
c/o: readergirlz Rock the Drop
372 Fifth Avenue
Brooklyn, NY 11215

We can't wait! Now, off to gather a box for 826NYC, and to think of the perfect drop spots for our books....
Don't forget to post pics at our facebook of any books you drop or find! Hope to see you online on Support Teen Literature Day!

I love this idea! The only worry I have is that in some places it's still quite cold and rainy/slushy/etc, so leaving a book around might potentially ruin it before anyone can get to it. I guess we'll see!
