It's Baaa-aaack! MG Book Bomb 2015!

Last year, people all over the universe participated in an event so awe-inspiring, so share-inducing that we here at Middle Grade Minded have decided to help promote it once again.

It's the MG BOOK BOMB 2015!

We want to thank Ginger Lee Malacko for letting us help out again this year. The "rules" (in quotes because there are no rules, really) are the exact same and very simple (and nonexistent, but let's just stop interrupting ourselves, okay?). Here they are:

1. Wait until Saturday, July 11th to do this. 
I guess that's kind of a rule. Maybe. But when that day arrives, you just...

2. Pick a book.
This can be a copy of your book, an ARC of your book, or a favorite classic you want to share. And then you...

3. Print out the Book Bomb notes.
They can be found here and are ready to be cut, colored, written on, or left alone. Just add one of the notes to the inside of your book and...

4. Drop the book.
Anywhere. Literally. The weirder the better. But don't forget to...

5. Tag it.
Take a picture of the book in its location and tweet it into the twittersphere using the #mgbookbomb hashtag.

That's it! Sure, it's fun and you can promote your own books or a friend's book, but the most important thing is that we're sharing books with kids. I'll be dropping an ARC of my own book, My Seventh-Grade Life in Tights (out April 12, 2016, shameless plug) somewhere in Tennessee. If you want some helpful hints and tips on how to make your own MG Book Bomb a roaring success, just click here.

So, have fun and we'll see you on Saturday, June 11th! Happy, um, dropping!

  1. Looks like I missed MG Book Bomb Day, sounds like a fun idea, though!
