Here’s how Rock the Drop works:
1. Print out the official bookplate (click here for a full-size version) and put it inside a book you want to share. Used books are totally okay! You can also share the bookplate on your blog, Tumblr, and Facebook.
2. Plan a super sneaky or sentimental place to hide your book. Under the tree in your favorite park? On the subway? In the cafeteria? Whichever place you choose is perfect.
3. On Thursday, April 18, drop your book and then tweet a picture or the name of the location with the hashtag #rockthedrop.
4. Bask in the glow that comes with introducing a complete stranger to his or her new favorite book.
And don’t forget, you can FIND books too! Follow @readergirlz for more info on #rockthedrop.
This year, you can also donate books to the awesome 826NYC to help them grow their in-house library and support their youth writing and literacy initiatives! Package up books you love and mail them to:
