Yay – this awesome promotion is coming back again next year! If you love to read a good book and to tell other people about it, you may want to apply now (before January 5th, 2014) to be a World Book Knight Giver.

On April 23rd, 2014, World Book Night, an annual celebration designed to spread a love of reading and books, will take place in the U.S. and U.K. and they’re looking for 25,000 volunteers to each hand out 20 copies of select book titles. That means they’ll be giving away a total of 500,000 FREE special World Book Night paperbacks! Wow! 😀

In order to be a book giver, you must be:

*Aged 16 or over and a resident of the U.S. (go here for the U.K./Ireland site)
*Able to pick up 20 copies of your book from your local bookshop or library
*Committed to giving your books away on World Book Night to non or light readers

How Does it Work?

*Head on over here by January 5th, 2014 and fill out the form to register to be a World Book Knight Giver.

*On the registration page, you’ll need to make 3 book choices and state why you’d like to participate and where you are thinking of going to give out your books. Keep in mind that World Book Knight Givers will be chosen based on where, to whom, and why you want to give books away (95% of applicants are accepted).

*You will be notified in early February 2014 if you have been chosen to be a book giver and which of the three books they are able to provide you with. You will then choose at which local bookstore or library you’d like to pick up your box of books ahead of World Book Night (during the week of April 14th 2014).

*Then, on April 23rd, 2014, you’ll just need to go to a coffee shop or hospital, church or community center, an after-work party or train home, shopping mall or local school — and give out 20 FREE paperbacks. Keep in mind that these paperbacks will be specially-produced, not-for-resale World Book Night U.S. editions, and there will be 35 titles for you to choose from.

(Thanks, Dayna!)

What is the HIP List?

Have you ever had moments when you're either out of time or out of printer ink, or both, and you really want to keep track of a "Hip" deal or print a valuable coupon in the next day or two? Or what do you do when an outstanding, but pricey, deal is posted and you want to save it for discussion with your significant other? Well, now you're in luck! No more searching through pages of posts to find the coupon or the deal. Simply add the post to your HIP List and access it at your convenience.

How Does the HIP List Work?

It's easy! To use this feature, you first must head on over here and register and log into your account. Whenever you find a great deal that you want to come back later to, just click on the HIP List icon located on each post (see images below) and the information will be saved in your account.


When logged into your account, you will then see your HIP List on every page.


If you're wanting to print a certain deal, article, or the Weekly Store Matchups from your HIP list, click on the small blue printer icon in the upper right corner of the HIP list. That will allow you to customize the information that you want or don't want to include in your HIP list so you're only printing the information that's most important to you!


If there are deals that you are not interested in keeping on your list, just click on the minus button to remove it.


Now, just print your customized HIP list whenever you're ready to go shopping and snag some "Hip" deals!
