Pass the Book


One of the cool things I found out on the Leviathan tour was that the libraries of Howard County in Maryland are doing a little experiment called Pass the Book.

Here’s how Pass the Book works:

Step One: Obtain six hundred copies of Midnighters.

Step Two: Tag each one with its own unique tracking number.

Step Three: Release them into the wild!

Step Four: Let people read the books, register them online, and pass them on as they see fit.

Step Five: Monitor them using the internets!

That’s right, six hundred copies of Midnighters: The Secret Hour are being given away free and are traveling across the country right now. They look like regular copies, except for this sticker:


There’s also a page inside with detailed instructions on how to register the book online. To check out where the registered copies are right now, just click here.

I was given one of these books at my appearance in Baltimore. To be precise, it was Midnighters number 130, a multiple of 13! It flew with me to Los Angeles that very night, where I gave it to a bookseller. So hopefully it will appear on the map soon.

If you find number 130, let me know! There are also three other copies that I autographed, all of which are multiples of thirteen.
