As many of you know, last week, on February 14th it was International Book Giving Day.

First established last year by Amy, from Delightful Children’s Books, and her family, International Book Giving Day is a day dedicated to getting new, used, and borrowed books in the hands of as many kids as possible.

If you took part in the day, donating books to friends, families and further afield, today’s the day to come and share the news with us. If you’re a blogger, please use the Linky tool below to share the post you’ve written about how you celebrated International Book Giving Day. If you’re not a blogger (or haven’t had time to write a blog post), please leave a comment on this post letting us know what you got up to.

Once you’ve left a link or a comment, don’t forget to visit some of our fellow participants in International Book Giving Day. From the comfort of your own home you could travel from Australia to Turkey, from the UK to India, from the Philippines to the US.

However you celebrated International Book Giving Day Amy and I are most grateful. It’s humbling and inspirational to be surrounded by such generous, creative folk. *Thank you!*

    We were lucky enough to have some spare children’s picture books that had been brailled and were able to pass them onto some of our library members. These included a young library member who recently did a bake sale with one of her sighted school friends on our behalf.

    Renee (Sprouting the beans) – I’m having problems leaving a comment on your blog, so on the off chance you’ll return here, I just wanted to thank you for taking part in International Book Giving day. And also to wave at a fellow fan of The Birchbark House – a tremendous novel.
