Rock the Drop!

Operation TBD

Where will you lose a book on April 16, 2009?

You've probably heard that rgz, GuysLitWire, YALSA and publishers are giving away 8,000 new young-adult novels, audio books, and graphic novels to hospitals for teens across the country on that day.

Now rgz is inviting readers and YA authors to leave a young adult book in any public place on April 16th. Here's what to do:

  • Download a bookplate and put it in a book.
  • Leave a comment about which title(s) you plan to drop in your community and where.
  • Take a photo as you drop your book.
  • Upload the photo during the TBD Post-Op Party, a live chat taking place at the readergirlz blog that night at 6 PM Pacific/9 PM Eastern.
  • Join in the chat; lots of authors will be stopping by.
I'm carting a box of books to the Boston Children's Hospital, and dropping a signed copy of SECRET KEEPER either at a T-stop or a local coffee shop. See you at the rgz party on 4/16!
