TBD 2009

Operation TBD 2009

Operation Teen Book Drop 2009 (TBD '09) is being held in celebration of Support Teen Literature Day, April 16th, 2009. Through the efforts of readergirlz (http://www.readergirlz.com), GuysLitWire (http://guyslitwire.blogspot.com), YALSA (http://www.ala.org/yalsa), and publishers, teen patients in pediatric hospitals across the United States will receive 8,000 new young-adult novels, audiobooks, and graphic novels.

Inciting all to participate in Operation TBD in its drive to spur reading on a national scale, readergirlz invites teens and YA authors to leave a book in a public place on April 16th. Participants can download bookplates to insert into the books they'll leave behind. The TBD Post-Op Party is open to everyone at the rgz blog (http://readergirlz.blogspot.com) at 6:00 PM Pacific/9:00 PM Eastern. Come rock the drop in 2009!
