Happy Holidays from Macmillan Library!

Snoopy Holidays Dearest librarians,

This will be my last blog post of 2011. It's been an absolute pleasure blogging about all of our amazing books over the last year.

Tomorrow, I'm heading back to the Pacific Coast to spend the holidays with my family. I'm looking forward to a lot of eating, reading, and sleeping in as late as Mom will let me.

Things we're looking forward to in early 2012:

ALA Midwinter in Dallas!

PLA in Philadelphia!

World Book Night USA, during which two of our titles, HOUSEKEEPING and ENDER'S GAME, will be given out for free to remind people about the joy of reading! See all of the WBN books here or jump right in and sign up to give away books.

This holiday season Talia and I wish you many hugs, lots of smiles, delicious food, and piles of puppies. You make our jobs wonderful and easy.

Have an excellent rest of the year, and we'll see you on the other side!

Happy Holidays!

I guess I'm not understanding when to sign up for the free book, b/c when I clicked on HOUSEKEEPING, it has a price on it. Is it only on a certain day that I could get this free?
Regards and Happy New Year,

Hey Teela,

World Book Night is a program that has volunteers across the country hand out books for free on April 23rd. The books cannot be ordered online. If you want to help out pass out books, sign up on their site! If you are hoping to find great new books to read for free, you might need to wait until all of the hand-out locations are set and posted (closer to April).

For more info keep an eye on their site: http://www.us.worldbooknight.org/. You can get links to Facebook and Twitter from there.
