WBN2014_logo_672x652Next year will be here sooner than you think, readers! And we're excited to share the official list of books that will be given away on World Book Night 2014.

World Book Night began in the U.K. and Ireland in 2011, with the U.S. joining in on the bibliophile fun the following year. On April 23, 2014, thousands of volunteers across the country will share their love of reading with their communities by distributing 500,000 free copies of books to under-served populations and new or light readers.

Some great books have been chosen for 2014 , including these highlights:

Kitchen Confidential by Anthony Bourdain

Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet by Jamie Ford

The Tipping Point by Malcolm Gladwell

Catch-22 by Joseph Heller
