Rocking the Drop

Operation Teen Book DropAfter a bit of flip flopping over where to drop off my books for this year’s Operation Teen Book Drop, I ultimately decided to head down to my local public library.

After checking out a book waiting for me on the hold shelf, I planted a copy of my book CHILL and the Louder Than Words memoir, MARNI on the community resources shelf and snapped a photo.

Started by readergirlz in 2007, Operation Teen Book Drop is held in honor of Support Teen Literature Day in conjunction with Guys Lit Wire, YALSA, and If I Can Read I Can Do Anything. As part of Operation TBD, more than 10,000 new YA books have been donated by publishers to go to teens on Native American tribal lands, and more than 100 YA authors (including yours truly), librarians, and teens are dropping off YA books in their own communities.

Want to be a part of Operation TBD? Grab a favorite YA book, download the official book plate to stick inside, and leave the book in a public space for some lucky teen to discover. Then head over to readergirlz for the TBD Post-Op party at the readergirlz blog, tonight at 6pm PST/9pm EST.
