Tonight is World Book Night

Tonight is the night free paperbacks get given away. The chosen books this year are listed and available for sale at Bookateria.

I have no idea how effective this promotion is in encouraging literacy and fostering a love of reading for pleasure, but it is impossible for me not to love a holiday specifically dedicated to giving books away. And the list is reasonably diverse given that there's only 28 of them.

I'd have gone for a bigger ethnic diversity myself, and more genres, but hey, when I finance the book giveaway I can decide what books to give. And at least there's some.
