Are you feelin' Generous? Welcome Teen Literature Day...

by helping out other teens! Check out this site: to learn how you can donate a teen book to a school library that is less fortunate than most, and then attend the on-line bash at six o'clock on Thursday night to celebrate Teen Literature Day. Even if you don't have the money to purchase a book, attend the party and meet some interesting new people! This event helps Native American tribal lands get their hands on some new YA books for teens just like you who may not be as fortunate. I found this on the web and had to tell you guys about it. I'm personally going to buy a book and donate it today!

It's time for Operation Teen Book Drop (TBD), our annual event held in honor of Support Teen Literature Day. On Thursday, April 15th, 2010, we - the combined efforts of readergirlz, Guys Lit Wire, YALSA, and If I Can Read I Can Do Anything - will be dropping over 10,000 new YA books, donated by publishers, into the hands of teens on Native American tribal lands. Nationwide, librarians, over 100 YA authors, and teens will drop YA books in their own communities. Participants can download bookplates to insert into the books they'll leave behind. That night at 6 PM PST / 9 PM EST, everyone will join an online TBD Post-Op party at the readergirlz blog.

You may also purchase books from the TBD Wish Lists which will go directly to two tribal school libraries. Click here to learn how to purchase books for students at Ojo Encino Day School and Alchesay High School.
