World Book Night

A Million reasons to read a book

In January I heard that the US was making its first attempt to participate in World Book Night – an organized night that exists to promote reading around the world. The idea was simple: take 30 of the most popular novels out in publication today, and what I imagine to be thousands of volunteers who absolutely love reading, and then stalk, accost, chat up, and just plain engage people on the street who seem like they need a push in the direction of literature.

Best Non-ABRAMS Books of 2011

ABRAMS employees’ favorite titles from other publishers

One of my favorite things about the end of the year is reading all “best-of” lists that come out.

Today is Poem in Your Pocket Day

In Celebration of National Poetry Month by Bruno Navasky

One of the most joyful days of a joyful month arrives on April 14: Poem in Your Pocket Day. The day takes its name from a poem by the noted children’s book author Beatrice Schenk de Regniers. The poem begins:

Keep a poem in your pocket
And a picture in your head
And you’ll never feel lonely
At night when you’re in bed.

The little poem will sing to you
The little picture bring to you
A dozen dreams to dance to you
At night when you’re in bed.
