Celebrate Book Giving Day with a Beers for Books Party

As lovers make plans for Valentine’s Day, book lovers need to remember that February 14th is also International Book Giving Day.

Instead of making fancy restaurant reservation, perhaps you should organize Beers for Books party instead. The basic plan is to partner with a bar, have a good time and raise money for literacy charities. Click here for all the details.

Here’s more about the organization: “The basic idea of ‘B4B’ is that you find a cool bar/restaurant in your neighborhood which agrees to donate $1 for every drink sold on a specific night, you invite all your friends (and they invite all their friends), and every $1 funds a high quality local language book for kids via Room to Read. Since February 2009 we’ve held events on 4 continents and 11 countries to raise funds for books for kids just by hanging out and having a good time. It’s an easy way to do good and learn about the amazing work of Room to Read with fun people.”
