I have to admit, not until LP was born, I hadn't taken time to enjoy a book and just relax and read in a long time. Maybe a book on CD as I traveled with my past job, but not very often sit down and read an entire book! After LP was born I immediately feel in love with children's books and knew that I wanted reading to be an important part of his life. LP reads books daily and we go to our local library every week. I too have started to read for fun again. After all, how could I expect him to enjoy reading if he didn't see me enjoying reading.
I became aware of World Book Night after I heard about it from the owner and an employee of the area kid's book, games and toys store, Cornerstone Cottage Kids. Cornerstone Cottage Kids is not only the North Iowa area coordinator, but they're also the state-wide coordinators. Pretty neat deal for a small-town kid's book, games and toys shop.

On April 30th we are having a "post-party" so I'll be sure to share about everyone's experiences then. My favorite distribution locations: an area track meet and an interstate rest stop! Can't wait to share more about the experiences and feedback.
