I freely admit to being a Scroogette regarding the holiday season (don't get me started), but even I can't help but be excited by any program, regardless of the season, that helps to share the love of reading with those who appreciate it most.
The self-professing reading Divas over at readergirlz have partnered with First Book to give away more than 125,000 brand-new books to low-income teen readers. The books are available to any group that works with teenagers, including schools, after-school programs, youth groups, community centers, etc.
Whether or not you have teenagers in your life, this is a wonderful cause to support. Please take a few moments and pop on over to read all the details:
