Rock the Drop 2013

Readergirlz are happy to announce Operation Teen Book Drop 2013! On April 18th, readergirlz will be teaming with Figment I HeartDaily, SohoTeenand 826NYC to celebrate YA lit in honor of Support Teen Lit Dayon Thursday, April 18th. We can’t wait!

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.

Here’s how you can get involved:

* Follow @readergirlzon Twitter and tweet #rockthedrop
* Print a copy of the bookplate (found on readergirlz blog) and insert it into a book (or 10!) On April 18th, drop a book in a public spot (park bench, bus seat, restaurant counter?) Lucky finders will see that the book is part of ROCK THE DROP!
* Also feel free to post the bookplate (designed by the super-talented Lindsay Frantz) and add it to your blog and social networks. Proclaim that you will ROCK THE DROP!
* Snap a photo of your drop and post it at the readergirlz Facebook page. Then tweet the drop at #rockthedrop with all the other lovers of YA books.

If you’d like to donate books to 826NYC, here’s the address:

Attn: Joan Kim

a note from Janet: This is such a fun, generous event. This year I’m Rocking the Drop = sending books to 826NYC and dropping off a book in a fun location on the 18th.

I hope you’ll join me and Rock the Drop.

Until next time walk well.
