Rock the Book Drop!!!

Today is Operation Book Drop! What is that you might ask? Well, it's a very cool activity sponsored by ReaderGirlz in support of the charity boook drive they do every year. This year's drive will supply tribal school libraries. Read more about the effort HERE.

But what's your role in all this? It's super-simple. All you have to do to participate is grab a middle grade or YA novel (it doesn't have to be, but one can hope) and leave a note in it to the person who finds it. Tell them its theirs and that you're supporting the The Book Drop (TBD). Then leave your house or work on errands or specifically for the drop and leave you book, note tucked inside, in a public place for some lucky person to find.

I'll be taking part as soon as I get out of work today, but authors, bloggers, and book lovers everywhere are already participating!

Andrea Cremer (Nightshade) dropped a copy of Paper Towns in the cereal aisle.

Kami Garcia (Beautiful Creatures) stopped for caffeine and rocked the drop at a Starbucks.

Some lucky coffee drinker will find a copy of Forest of Hands and Teeth thanks to author Carrie Ryan.

You can follow the topic on Twitter with the hash tag #operationtbd
Here's what some other folks are doing.

What are you waiting for? Pick a book!
