Happy Printed Book Day!
As some of you may know, I'm not just an author, I'm also a history teacher. It just so happens that today (by the time this goes live, at least, on Feb. 23rd in the US) is Printed Book Day. Huh! Who knew that printed books had their own day? Yeah, I didn't know that either. But it's true, apparently. And ironically, in class today, I taught my 10th-grade students about Gutenberg and the invention of the printing press. This was an invention that changed the world - an invention the impact of which is absolutely incalculable on humankind and on the course of history. It was an invention, I stressed, that led to an increase in literacy, knowledge, and general well-being and prosperity in and for years to come! Now, I'm not sure if we celebrate Printed Book Day on Feb. 23rd to honor Gutenberg, although a quick internet search could probably tell me one way or the other (but it's late and I honestly hadn't planned this blog post, so I'm too lazy to do that right now), but I'm celebrating Printed Book Day by giving away a signed copy of BREEDER and a $5 gift card to Starbucks (because what is reading without coffee?). So how do you enter this Giveaway? Well, you have to participate on Instagram, so the first thing you need to do is follow me HERE. Then just read the directions on the Giveaway post! Good luck, and Happy Printed Book Day!
