The monsters think it is a monstrously good idea and want to encourage all you book lovers to get involved in the celebrations.
There are a number of ways you can celebrate including -
1) giving a book to a friend or family member
2) leaving a book in a waiting room for children to read
3) donating a gently used book to a local library, hospital or shelter or to an organization that distributes used books to children in need.
I have designed a monster bookplate which people can print out and attach to books they give-
