International Book Giving Day 2/14

Tomorrow is Valentines Day, but it is also International Book Giving Day.
This was news to me, and I thought I would pass along the message. I follow Jump Into A Book, and this was their post today. In that post and also here, you can get a few ideas on how to participate. 
My participation plans are to select some books from my children’s collection to donate to a local church. Also I will be giving the neighbor’s daughter a collection of Bob Books. While this is a belated birthday gift, it is still a book gift right?

On the theme of books, I was hunting around on Amazon.com this morning for a children’s book. I wanted to share a gem I found,

 
KiteReaders Classics – The Tale of Peter Rabbit

The pictures in the Kindle version are the same as the ones I remember from my book growing up. As this book is intended for children ages 3-6 some of the writing has been edited. At of the time of this post this book is available FREE for Kindle editions. If you think you might ever want to have this go and download it now! I do not know how long it will remain that price. You can download now and read next year, or whenever you are ready for it.

I will say at almost 3 years old this abridged version was still a tiny bit too long for my daughters patience. I am not certain if it was because we read three other stories before this, or the length of this book.

I also downloaded these for myself, as they were FREE too (at the time of this post 2/13-2/14),

Bedding The Wrong Brother (Dalton Brothers Novels)
Then Comes Marriage

They are not necessarily my go to type of reading, but I thought a change might be nice. (When I get a chance to read more than for my English class that is) I haven’t started either of them yet, but downloaded them now as they are Valentines specials that will end tomorrow.

What are you and/or your kids reading? How can you participate in International Book Giving Day?
