Keeping Reading Alive Through Book Giving

by Agnes Manalo

Unlike food or other consumables, a book maintains its value as it gets passed on and read by more people. Every book being given away is a new story for someone to discover, a new world to lose one’s self in even just for a while. And for a kid, it might be the book that turns them into a lifelong reader, and many times, a change maker or a passion pursuer. This is one of the reasons book sharing remains important, and why people should celebrate International Book Giving Day… not just every February 14, but every day. Because when you give away a book, you send a part of you out into the world. And that is one great way to love. ☁
