Teen Literature Day: Rock the Drop

Tomorrow is a pretty exciting day for people who love teen lit!

As many of you may know, we are smack in the middle of National Library Week, and every year, the Thursday of this glorious library-oriented week is dubbed Teen Literature Day!

So what can you do to celebrate? One of my favorite ideas comes from Readergirlz. This year they have teamed up with Figment (which you should check out if you like to read and write; it's cool) to bring us Rock The Drop in honor of tomorrow, Thursday, April 14th.

Here's how it works:

1. Print a copy of the official Rock The Drop bookplate and insert it into a book (or books) that you'll drop on April 14th.

2. Drop a book in a public spot (park bench, bus seat, restaurant counter, etc) and you're done! Lucky finders will spot the book it and see that the book is part of this awesome event.

3. Be sure to take a picture of your drop and send it to the readergirlz. They will be posting lots of pictures of drops happening all over the world on their blog!

Sound like fun? Click here for the official rules, banner, and book plate.

Additionally, YALSA has provided a list of other ways to celebrate Teen Literature Day as well as a pretty cohesive list of recommended books for Operation Teen Book Drop. Click here for YALSA's Teen Literature Day wiki.

Happy day and happy reading!
