World Book Night - have you been 'selected'?

    Has anyone else been given the chance to give away books for World Book Night?
    have, and am now wondering quite how to make an event of it, having not
    really thought about it in detail in advance. Any suggestions?

    I have! Got the email today. Very excited - I never win anything. I have no idea about how to make an event of it. I'd vaguely thought I might just give them out...I'd considered giving some away at parents' evenings...and the rest to just be handed out among friends, family and colleagues. Are we going to be expected to give them all out on the night, do you think? I'm not sure how that will be practical, unless we just divvy them out down the pub or among the neighbours - and I'd ideally like to be more discerning than that! I definitely want to give them to people I'm fairly sure will read the thing.
    What ideas have you had? What book are you giving? Mine's Cloud Atlas.

    BTW - I've just started a similar thread in the Book Club forum, may get a few more replying on there.

    I've got Northern Lights.

    I think the original details said something about giving them out on, or as close to, the night as possible. I would like to arrange some sort of event in school, but don't see myself going in for a Saturday night so might need to look at an alternative.
    I'd quite like there to be some sort of event linked to reading that might encourage at least 48 families into school to either collect a free copy, or at least be entered into a draw for one. But what event?
