Readergirlz Continue to Rock!

Posted by blatantbibliophiles on May 5, 2008

 Readergirlz wants to thank everyone who participated in Operation Teen Book Drop on April 17. With the help of teen readers from across the nation, readergirlz delivered over 10,000 books in excellent pediatric hospitals in the United States and Canada. These donated books provided comfort to over 10,000 hospitalized teens. Way to go readergirlz! In case you missed Operation TBD, you can read about it in Publishers Weekly, School Library Journal, and the Seattle Post-Intelligencer. Especially important to the effort and deserving of a very public and very special thank you is readergirlz diva and author, Lorie Ann Grover, for managing Operation TBD. It was a massive amount of work and she handled it as beautifully as she writes. Readergirlz would like to give special shout outs to their contributing publishers:

Abrams Books, Bloomsbury USA, Candlewick Press, Da Capo Press, Full Cast Audio, Hachette Book Group, Harcourt, HarperCollins, Hyperion Books, Little, Brown Books for Young Readers, Marshall Cavendish, Mirrorstone (imprint of Wizards of the Coast), Newmarket Press, Orca Book Publishers, Peachtree Publishers, Perseus Book Group, Random House, Scholastic, Simon & Schuster Children’s Books, TOKYOPOP, and Tor Books.
